Thanks, Dave. I figured out my ESC issue. I was testing via VNC and that
is where is wasn't working. At the Mini it works fine.

I found mtd buried in /Applications/Mythfrontend.app/Contents/MacOS/,
but I have no clue how to run it at boot.
It isn't like OS X has /etc/rc.local!
Looked at creating a shortcut to /Library/StartupItems/, but that didn't
And I do not quite grok launchd (or whatever the new Tiger xinetd deal
is called).

Any ideas?

I have been using Myth for YEARS now, but this is the furthest along I
have been in configuring a remote frontend. Been using it from the
backend forever and this is a bit...different.
Rather than dump all the questions in a single thread, I am going to
post a bunch of separate ones. Perhaps it will be easier for folks down
the road to search on.
