Interesting - it was a simple install of debs for me and it auto configured
Did you use the freenx server from the repository? its hopelessly out of date.
The .deb packages from nomachine are much better.
What system are you running the NX client on? I'm accessing my myth box across
a lan using a windows client, its very snappy, much better than VNC or X for
me. Also I access it over a VPN from work where it really shines.
Could depend on what your doing as well - I don't run mythfrontend over it,
rather the KDE desktop for graphical admin tasks etc.
