 MythTV frontend screen setup does not allow setting screen size greater
 than 1920x1080 unless you select auto full screen option & that option
 does not work nicely with non-autohide taskbars on some display managers.

 MythTV frontend GUI lags badly once display size is about 3000x1800.
 Increasing the openGL buffers helps. People with weak hardware / limited
 GPU memory might not be happy (ARM).

 Some people will prefer to scale all video to 4K on the GPU & drive screen
 at native resolution; also avoids (some of) the annoying display mode
