Right thanks, that's helpful. Setting up 2 Xscreens is not something I've done - how do you tell Myth which screen to use? Or is it just a case of setting the TV to be the primary display?

In the long run I'm going to be having the backend connected to the telly anyway, and in that case I will use one X screen and that will be the TV, so this problem will go away anyway. For the record, I've found that I can use Nvidia-settings to switch off the laptop's flat panel while the TV is connected, and that does improve matters a little.
