The way I chose to go (probably not common) is to set up each display device 
as a separate X screen.  (see: 

The plan is to have 2 instances of myth f/e running - one on each display - 
and just turn on the one that I am using.  I have not actually tested this 
yet, but it sounded promising to me :-)

Speaking of which, is there any reason why 2 instances of the frontend can't 
run on one system?
