I tried it myself and I agree 
mythfrontend-20190620-arm64-v30.0-60-gb9c1b41a6c0.apk is hanging on the 

It is very strange, the application is actually running but the screen 
still displays only the MythTV icon. I tried operating the remote and 
the log confirmed that it was responding and going into live tv, but the 
screen still only showed the MythTV icon.

Version master (v31-pre) is working fine, which is a mystery, since 
these fixes should be in there as well.

Based on the fact that 
mythfrontend-20190414-arm64-v30.0-43-g5a67176bf90.apk is working, the 
problem must be in one of these commits (see below).
