Don't think I answered this..

mythfrontend -- main program, contains the scheduler, handles playing, etc.

mythtv -- small wrapper around the TV class, only does live-tv.
mythepg -- small wrapper program around the program guide
mythdialog -- small program to just pop up a dialog box
mythfilldatabase -- fills the database =)
menutest (not installed, in the menutest subdir) -- a little program for 			
		displaying the menu files.

mythepg and mythdialog are execed in a few places by the TV class.. They're 
basically leftover from when I was keeping Qt code out of the video stuff.  
mythtv is good for just watching tv, if you don't want the other stuff
