Oh, and I forgot to mention in my prior message: According to the above 
guide, one should configure MythTV to have stereo audio output.

While I don't yet have my surround audio system set up yet, is it true 
that using a Fire Stick 4k as a frontend, you won't even get surround sound?

If all of the above are just "how it is" with a Fire Stick, what is the 
preferred MythTV frontend device these days?  I'm sort of old school 
with the "pop an NVIDIA card in a PC and you'll be golden" mindset.
