 Are you setting suid on both mythfrontend and mythbrowser? There is no
 point setting it on mythbrowser and doing so would be a very bad idea due
 to the security implications.

 I've just give this a try by only setting suid only on mythfrontend and
 everything seemed to work as expected. At least I get the "Using realtime
 priority" message and mythbrowser works fine.

 There are better/more secure ways to increase the priority of the video
 playback threads see the "Enabling real-time scheduling of the display
 thread" section from [http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-5.html]
