[mythtv-users] GetScreenShot in Android (Fire TV Stick) land?

Hi folks,

Coming from a combined FE/BE background, I had a workflow to grab a 
screenshot of what's currently on the screen.  Which was essentially 
just visit http://<hosname>:6547/MythFE/GetScreenShot and save the image 
from my web browser.

Now that I've switched over to a Fire TV stick frontend for watching 
recordings, this doesn't appear to be possible anymore.  Specifically, 
with the (excellent) Leanfront frontend, I don't even see port 6547 
being listened on while it's running.  And if I use the (not quite as 
nice performance-wise) full-blown MythTV Frontend, I do indeed see it 
listening on 6547 on my Fire TV device, but requests to 
http://<hosname>:6547/MythFE/GetScreenShot result in a 404.

Is there a way to get a screenshot from what is being displayed on a 
Fire TV MythTV frontend?
