Yes, I do this all the time too when I need to access some other app on the 
system but MythTV is still running full-screen even though it is not the 
topmost window.  I believe what Lonnie wants is to have MythTV run in a 
re-sizable window that can be moved around while doing other tasks on the 
system.  For that you need to go into setup and specify that you want 
mythfrontend to run "windowed".
