> Peter has done a great job on the coding and the documentation, but adding info just adds to the untiggerish TL;DR factor.  Try the myth wiki for android and/or leanfront.
> I would choose leanfront for viewing, if I was confident that the file is good and the format suitable; that hasn't always been obvious. Display quality seems better than the normal frontend, particularly in panning shots, with or without nVidia.  I don't use 1080 formats much, and higher res not at all.
> I expect to continue using Mythfrontend/keyboard/mouse for admin and editing work.
> I use adb, from android-tools, for installing.  You need to enable the android 'developer mode', which is well hidden on my Sony tv.

I feel like I'm on the other side
