I have the mythtv user automatically logged in on tty8. Then their 
.bash_profile does a startx and the last thing in the .xinitrc is 
mythfrontend. This runs the FE without the overhead of a window manager. 
I started doing it this way when I used to use 1G AppleTVs running linux 
as FE boxes and I wanted as small of memory footprint as possible.
