That's because the .profile in the 770 overrides $DISPLAY, and also
because the 770 does not have xauth, which is needed for the ssh server
to set up X forwarding.

Try porting and installing xauth on the 770, and then setting
DISPLAY=localhost:10 after logging in and before running oggplay.

Please tell us if this works.
