[mythtv-users] mythfrontend - android (Shield (androidTV) only maybe)

When turning off my TV (I leave my Shield always on) and mythfrontend is
running on my Shield and turn it back on later, it is always a black
screen.  Pressing Home and restarting mythfrontend fixes it, but also if I
wait between 5 and 10 minutes, it also comes back eventually.

Anyone else experience it this way?  I know others have posted about it
stopping completely whereas other apps will remember position and menu
location, etc since Android is multi-task capable nowadays in userspace.
Are there plans to accommodate that in mythfrontend?  Not a nag - just
wondering - I will always be watching Mythfrontend 99% of the time, but the
black screen and a full restart of mythfrontend seems odd when it was
running when I turn off the TV.

I have CEC completely off on all of my devices, "Keep SHIELD awake on TV
input switch" and "Play comfort noise on HDMI" enabled on the shield.
