Happy New Year to All Mythtv User !

Hello Stroller,

I think the problem is how I start mythbackend.

If I do it as follows
/etc/init.d/mythbackend start
then I get the problems.

But if I do simply

then it functions !

1. What is the right way to start mythbackend ? I didn't find it in the 

2nd problem:

I have also startted the frontend and it was slow and I  tried to make the 
frontend window smaller. I changed the resolution in Setup on 2 positions to 
320x240. Now I start it but I don't have any conrol because I see only a 
small part of the window :-)
My mythtv PC is AMD-Athlon-2600 and 256MB RAM.

2. Where can I change the window size/resolution of the frontend window 
(manualy, without Setup, just to edit the config file) because I cant reach 
Setup anymore ?

Thank you
