Database server separate from TV server? (1 Viewer)

I searched, but I could not find a clear answer to this question:

I installed the TV server on a machine, we'll call it "A", and I used an existing MSSQL server which is on another machine, we'll call it "B". Using the MediaPortal client on "A", I can watch TV. Everyone is happy.

If I attempt to watch TV on another machine, we'll call it "C", the MediaPortal client complains that TCP port 1433 should be open on the TV server. This is, of course, the MSSQL TCP/IP port.

Am I to understand that the database server must be the same machine as the TV server, when a remote client is to be used?
