I found a simple solution:
In the General section on the mythtvsetup screens, I set the "Startup
su - mythtv -c "/home/mythtv/startfrontend $status"
Where the contents of /home/mythtv/startfrontend is:
case $1 in
ln -sf /usr/bin/mythfrontend
rm -f /home/mythtv/.kde/Autostart/mythfrontend
Besure you set permisions on startfrontend so that the mythtv user can
This assumes you have set up automatic startup per instructions at
> Mythtv will only auto shutdown if the frontend appliction is running.
> How can mythtv be set to shutdown after a scheduled recording when it
> is set to autostart if the front end is also set to autostart when the
> application is started by the bios clock?
> I have tried a script the should be executed immediately after the

> nothing, if "user" it should start mythfrontend.
> This does not work. Any ideas?
