The 'normal' setup is to run both mythfrontend and mythbackend on the
same machine.  To view your programs on a separate computer, all you
have to do is install mythtv on it, but run only mythfrontend and
configure it to connect to a remote mythbackend.  (You actually don't
even need to install mythbackend on the viewing-only system, but your
distro may bundle them into a single package so that you get both
even if you don't need them.)

The freedoms that we enjoy presently are the most important victories of the
White Hats over the past several millennia, and it is vitally important that
we don't give them up now, only because we are frightened.
