That is the preferred approach (assuming by, "desktop manager," you
actually mean, "desktop environment"). Don't run GNOME or KDE (desktop
environments), but instead run a small, lightweight,
appropriate-for-MythTV window manager--like RatPoison.
Note that running with no window manager is not a supported
configuration. See also
http://mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-23.html#ss23.2 and the section "My
remote doesn't work / works sometimes and not others / 'ghost'
keypresses" at http://mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-22.html#ss22.5 and
