All this talk of mythtv on android got me curious, so I just tried doing
a build to see how it would be on my Sony TV, but since (I believe)
it runs 32 bit, I had to build for that, and those 32 bit large file
support bugs hit and that seems just not fixable.  Trying to go to API
24 that supposedly fixes that problem causes other things to not work.

Oh well, I guess the sony TV is probably too ram limited anyhow to run
the frontend.

I think the readme file might as well state building for 32 bit is broken
for now.  Would have saved some time.
