If running on a relatively recent version of OpenSSH (and you should 
/never/ run on an old version), I recommend:

ssh -Y mythbox

The -X, by default, results in "untrusted" X11 forwarding, so you'll 
typically get some problems with nearly all X apps (including MythTV) 
such as "Bad atom" this and "X Error" that because they need "trusted" 
access to display resources.
