I use kdm and kde with autologon.. Starting "needed" stuff (like vdr-sxfe) in 
directory ."kde/Autostart/".
vdr-sxfe starts at first desktop in fullscreen mode and rest of programs (like 
web browser and few xTerms) at other virtual desktops..  So, when I need 
to "do something" with that computer (hey, it's HTPC not only VDR) I 
just "jump" to some virtual desktop to do.. When I jump back to desktop 1, I 
can continue with TV..
