I'm having the same gray screen problem. I just reinstalled everything after messing up my Media Director and not getting any support from fellow forum members on how to get it added back. Anyway, before I messed up my Media Director I could get Mythtv running by starting mythfrontend from a terminal window but now I've reinstalled everything I can't even do that. Now it complains about not finding the backend. I'm new to all this so I'm not sure how to get the backend running, but it seems that on the first install LinuxMCE was at least starting the backend but the frontend was failing on startup.
I spent a lot of money on getting great hardware for this project and was full of anticipation of great TV/DVR functionality, but I've been working on it for 3 weeks now and I'm beginning to think that MythTV is just that...a myth!
