    I am trying to get mythbuntu to autostart mythtv on the second display (my tv).
    I have tried editing the mythtv.desktop file and changed as follows
    exec=mythfrontend --service
    changed to
    exec=DISPLAY=:0.1 mythfrontend --service

    I also tried by creating a bash command file mythtvegen
    export DISPLAY=:0.1
    mythfrontend --service

    and did a "chmod +x" on it.

    If I run the script manually ./mythtvegen it works like a charm but if
    I add it to autostart (via gui or manually) it does not work.

    EDIT: I'm running xfce

    Appreciate support

    It has been over year since this was posted, but google brought me here as I was looking for an answer to the same question. Here's the line I used to get myth to autostart on my second display:

    mythfrontend -display :0.1

    When I'm using Xine as video player, xine -pfhq --no-splash %s, in v0.21, the display setting wasn't passed on from MythTv to Xine. So instead of
    mythfrontend -display :0.1
    I prefer
    DISPLAY=":0.1" mythfrontend
    in my wrapper script to launch the frontend.
