[mythtv-users] mythtv without mouse input

I have a PVR-350 all set up properly, with a framebuffer. I can run X on
the TV-Out framebuffer, using a completely separate X configuration file
that contains the framebuffer-only configuration. My /etc/X11/xorg.conf
is untouched, and contains only my default X configuration. I also have the
PVR-350 IR remote working, and I can control mythtv completely with the
remote. I don't need mouse or keyboard input, at least for now.
I have the boot-time initialization automated to the point where I have a
script running early in the boot process that searches the PCI bus for the
PVR-350 card, and updates the framebuffer Xorg config file with the
PVR-350's PCI id; ditto with the framebuffer device that ivtv-fb grabs. If I
move the hardware around, things should re-configure themselves
automatically. So far, so good.
The last thing I want to do is to start a separate instance of Xorg during
boot, on a non-default DISPLAY, that runs off the framebuffer config, which
should not interfere with my default X desktop, running off the default
The problem is that the the separate Xorg instance, that runs off the
PVR-350's framebuffer, still wants to grab the mouse input, even if I don't
explicitly set up an InputDevice in the configuration file for it. Xorg has
a default mouse config setup that it falls back on. This causes problems
for my default X desktop, because, obviously, it wants the mouse too, but
the separate Xorg instance starts earlier, during boot, and gets it first.
Has anyone done this sort of a setup, for mythtv, before? Did you manage to
get X to keep its hands off the mouse, if so how?
