I just ran another test with a fire stick 4k, first I uninstalled MythTV 
leanback frontend and then installed the apk that I posted on 
bintray.com. Unfortunately it has the same icon as the normal 
mythfrontend, I will have to fix that. When highlighting it you can see 
the name displayed so that you know which is which.

If I select the myth leanback frontend icon in the fire stick 4k for the 
first time, it opens immediately to its setup page where you have to 
supply the backend ip address.

I don't know why this does not work for you. I suggest check in the 
installed applications that the correct one is installed.

Perhaps you have a bad adb. The one that comes with android studio is 
incompatible with one that comes with ubuntu. If you have android 
studio, run adb from the installed Android/Sdk/platform-tools/adb. You 
need to specify the port by running

adb connect [ip address of fire stick]:5555

If you still cannot launch the leanback frontend, run adb log while 
trying to launch it and see if there is a relevant error message.
