	Hi Dave. Sorry about not warning you.
No, they are not the same:

* MythFrontend.app provides a menu, and loads the PlugIns.

* MythTV.app is _just_ for TV, has no menu,
   and doesn't provide access to recordings.
   It does have one additional function, though.
   Provide it with a file on the command line
   (e.g. a .mpeg) and it will play it.
   Handy for debugging MythTV.

	Just MythFrontend.app
