Thanks Yan. That sounds easy enough.
When I do the above, I receive:
"mythfrontend: cannot connect to X server localhost:0"

I tried the local host's name and it's IP address with the same result. 
Do I need to install something in the xorg.conf? Or maybe a modification 

(Obviously, I am not familar with mythtv and X server errors)
