The OP just wanted to be able to capture a show every night and then
loop it endlessly the next day.  Scripting Myth is a good idea, but
overkill for that problem.

If the front-end machine is just displaying video and nothing else, then
he could skip the whole MythTV frontend (and X11 for that matter) and
just have a cron job that retrieves the most recent capture and plays it
with mplayer in endless-loop mode using the SVGA or FrameBuffer driver.
