skeeter -- The most usual reason for getting the message you report 
("cannot connect to X server") is that the userid under which X is running 
differs from the userid you try to start the program as. Please confirm 
that after starting X, you are not su'ing to root or to mythtv in the 
terminal window before trying to start mythfrontend.

If that is not it, please post the complete output ... the actual command 
that you type in the xterm and everything that mythfrontend (try that one, 
not mythtv) posts in response to it. I very much suspect we are all missing 
something "obvious" here, even if I've guessed the wrong "obvious" thing 

This sounds much more like an X problem than a MythTV problem, in any case. 
Can you start other X applications -- xine, xawtv, or whatever you happen 
to have around ... even Xeyes would serve for a test -- from this same xterm?
