Leanfront has really improved over the years and it's our primary viewer.
As I've stated elsewhere, We no longer use PCs or Mac for viewing any
Mythtv.  We use exclusively Android TV devices like FireTV and Shield TV.
Trying to configure other frontends was too time consuming and I've got
better things to do.

With Amazon Days coming up next Monday, I'll be looking for a good price on
a few more FireTV 4Ks.  I'll then be able to retire some old PC hardware in
all my TV locations.

Thanks for all the work on Leanfront.
