[mythtv-users] Reboot of backend causes frontend to crash?

   In my case the middle green button did not clear this message. Strange.

   Can you tell me how to restart the window manager? If I lose
control of the frontend (it's happened a couple of times now) I can
still ssh in from a remote system and kill all the mythfrontend
processes. This brings me to the Xebian desktop but using only the
remote control how do I restart Myth?

   Or is there some way I can restart mythfrontend from the ssh
terminal on another computer but get it to display on the XBox's TV?

Thanks much,
