In mythfrontend, Setup->Appearance->Screen settings (2nd page).
GUI width and height should be 4:3 like 800x600, 640x480, 480x360
or whatever. If you want 16:9, 800x450, etc. GUI X and Y set the
initial position on the desktop. I have mine in the lower left with
4,544. You can choose to have playback still be full screen or in the
same window as the GUI. "Run the frontend in a window" includes the
normal window frame decoration for your desktop.
