Thanks. I have it running on a Fire Stick 4k pretty nicely. Just didn't
know if I should try to do the TV thing or not. I'll probably get the TV
anyway and just use it as a dumb TV with a Fire Stick plugged in. It
just would've been nice to have it all in one device. And leanfront
seems really nice but I need live tv support.
