Well the mythwelcome looked like a perfect solution. It worked fine
through the ssh session I'd been working from but when I logged directly
into mythfrontend via mythwelcome on the PC the frontend worked as
expected but mythwelcome wouldn't recognise any keystrokes. To get around

Anyhow, I just wanted to update and thank you again for your help.
FTR the .xinitrc file I've used to get it working is (alsactl to get my
alsa setting back up):
/sbin/alsactl restore &
xset -dpms s off
xsetroot -solid black
In inittab I've used the suggestion posted in the archives here:
# Run xdm in runlevel 5
7:12345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty --autologin=mythuser tty7
