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?

You might need somebody with theme experience to look into this.

> 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?

There is nothing you can do.  Android handles that decision completely
on it's own.

According to the code, getting the CPU data should work the same as it
does on Linux.  Apparently, it isn't.  I'll try to look into it.
