It was two separate window managers. Basically we've got a new LCD
telly (we won it in a competition, rather nice but unplanned surprise!)
and I don't have any powerful enough spare bits to run MythTV for high
definition video, but I have a dual core PC (my desktop) sitting within
a cable's reach of where the TV will go, so I thought it would be ideal
if I could run videos on the PC on the second DVI output on my video card.
Would be great if anyone could suggest a frontend for just playing
videos and music (rather than a complete MythTV install?).
