Theme location on server

Hi folks.

Following a complete system failure I decided whilst rebuilding from scratch to put together a second cold standby server. My plan being that if the main server dies, I fire up the standby, change the IP addresses as required and I'm quickly back in business. I've replicated pretty much everything on said server, and tested successfully, but when I connect my workstations they revert to the default theme. The themes get downloaded locally, so there has to be a setting on the server that tells the workstation which theme its supposed to use. Can someone point me towards where the theme info is located on the server so that I can flag the correct theme please?

Cheers.

AFAIK, the theme used is stored in the database and cached in /home/<user>/.mythtv/themes/<theme name>. If it can't find the theme, then it reverts back to the default.
