For Years, I have been ssh'ing into a computer, which is connected to my TV. After I am connected, I start mplayer. This has literally worked for years.

This weekend, I upgraded my tv system. mplayer doesn't work anymore and this has something to do with "export DISPLAY=:0".
Code:
09:38:54^cr0t@moviebox:/mnt/LAN/usenet/MiSC > export DISPLAY=:0

09:39:06^cr0t@moviebox:/mnt/LAN/usenet/MiSC > mplayer Ylvis\ -\ The\ Fox\ \(What\ Does\ The\ Fox\ Say\)\ \[Official\ music\ video\ HD\]-jofNR_WkoCE.mp4

I have no idea what GDM is doing and/or how to fix it. So this is my work around. It's not even a work around, if I would do this at work... someone would murder me...
GDM has been disabled. On bootup, I starts X via a specific user.
