The builds of 30.Pre.1047.gaea1635b95 for both el7 and F28 are installed 
and working on FE/BE boxes, and 
mythfrontend-20181124-arm-v30-Pre-983-gca71c59e61a is working well in 
the firestick 4K with the F28 backend, using software decoding for both 
SD and HD recordings from UK DVB-T/T2 and driving a 1920*1080 TV, 
apparently at 1080p 60 Hz.

It would be interesting to know what causes the problem with hardware 
decoding, and the reported loads on the 4 cpus are higher than I would 
like, but what I have at present seems excellent.  Thank you.


Perhaps I should add that it's not quite 'practically perfect', although 
  this particular defect is unrelated to the MythTV frontend.

I just watched an HD recording via uPnP and VLC-for-Android, and panning 
shots were noticeably jerky, but not torn.  This was on my daughter's 
TV, on which that mode is at present the only one available, from a 
twonky uPnP server in NAS.  An smb option is visible too, but I'm 
currently having difficulty getting VLC to accept that connection; it 
works on my system.

Amazon Movies Prime and other mainstream sources are on offer and may 
work better.  I haven't seen much of them.
