Nope.  That seems a waste.  Why the overhead of two X servers when one
with two screens is sufficient?

It's not trying to guess.  I am setting DISPLAY=:0.1 before running
mythfrontend.  It displaying on the right screen, just not getting it's
screen geometry from the X server for the right screen.  It runs on :0.1
but thinks it's geometry is that of :0.0.


My other computer is your Microsoft Windows server.
