I've been running my new Shield tv pro since the weekend and only come across a few minor niggles. Other than that, it's been a really good mythtv experience. 

Mythbuntu theme (v30.1); In the Videos area, all the main screen text is black. All other places like the top bar and info popup windows are all correct with white text.  While other themes i've tried have different Videos layout, these work perfectly. Since i use the same version on my old NUC that the sheild replaced & rpi3's which dont exibit the issue, it seems to be specific to the shield and this theme.  Anything i can do to fix, or is it time to switch themes?

Shield is primarily used for MythTV, so i leave it running. System gets put into sleep and after a while when i turn it back on it wakes up in the leanback/home screen with the mythtv app in a sleep state. It doesnt happen if i leave it for a short period...mythtv remains the active app.  Is there any way to always keep it running regardless of idle time?

Finally, no cpu usage in the playback menu > playback > playback data. i assume a bug/limitation but would be good to have it working for if/when things aren't playing right.
