If you don't want to use the WAY TO BIG FOR MYTH window manager KDE, just get
x11vnc... it will bind to an already running session, so you can control the
ONE instance of mythfrontend that you have running.
$x11vnc -display :0
when run on the myth box will start the x11 server on port 5900 with your
current X session... I have a script on my remote machine so I can just run
it from the remote machine easily and quickly:
echo "x11vnc -display :0" | ssh matltwifi &
krdc -m -s vnc://192.168.1.6 && sleep 2
The first sleep is to let the ssh log-in and get x11vnc running, the second
sleep is so that the output of my prompt doesn't get drawn before the final
steps of the vnc disconnect. Hope this helps!
