VNC

This will enable you to view the graphical desktop of your Myth machine over the network without having to plug a monitor into the back. To run VNC, emerge it and review the documentation at http://realvnc.com You will also want to download a VNC client to the desktop you will be working from. Remotely login to the Myth box, then run VNC

#vncserver

Run the VNC client, and specify the IP address and display

192.168.1.102:1

Then enter your password. You should be faced with a simple graphical desktop. To run setup, simply run

#mythtv-setup

You may also want to see what is seen on the TV

#mythfrontend

Now you will not have to be running back and forth between the TV room and computer room! ;)
