I have not seen or heard of this behavior. I assume you got as far as 
the main menu so it must be successfully connecting to the database and 
the backend.

Have you gone into setup and set the audio and video profile (or maybe 
it hangs even before you can get there). If you have not set these up 
and you are attempting playback it will not work well.

If you still have a problem you can get a log.

If you have adb installed and debug mode activated, you can do this to 
get a log:

On your linux machine, with the ip address of the shield:
adb connect [ip address]
adb logcat mfe:D *:S |& tee android.log

Then try starting mythfrontend and navigating. If it is having errors 
you will see them on the screen and in the android.log file. This may 
give you an idea of what is wrong.
