2 easy options I can suggest:

1) Set VNC in xorg.conf and run a VNC client to connect to the MythTV
box. You can then use the keyboard and mouse from a remote PC to
configure MythTV.

2) Install Xming on a remote PC and tell it to log into your MythTV
box and run mythtv-setup which will be displayed on the remote PC.
