Sorry for this mostly me too response...

I've got a similar setup (1024x768, 640x480) and have had a similar
experience.  I manually edited the ui.xml file for the theme that I'm
using to get the fonts to my liking.  Mostly just changed the big font for
the playback sections, adding 6-8 point sizes.

I open an xterm in the second screen, then run mythfrontend from there. 6
of one, half dozen of another.
