2 modes:

1: Cygwin/X (on winXP SP3/32bit) in full XDMCP allows me to run Mythfrontend on my Windows PC -- BUT I DO NOT use it to watch TV or control the system more than editing library stuff. The machine this is running on is a Master back-end only.

2: I run Cygwin/X on the same machine but NOT in a full XDMCP session. I use "export DISPLAY" to the my WinXP PC and run Mythfrontend as well.
If I "su - root" and then set the display accordingly and then run mythtvsetup, that works too.
