I made a couple scripts "sson" and "ssoff".

  xset +dpms s on

  xset -dpms s off

I then made a wrapper script "mf" for mythfrontend:


then I just run "mf" and the screensaver is automatically turned 
off, and the frontend is started, and then the screensaver is 
turned back on when (if) I exit.
