1.  So v0-173 Leanfront fixed the LiveTV problem on the Shield TV and 
FireTV 4K; Thanks.

2.  I increased all tuning timeouts to 8000, but no change.  On 
mythfrontend on the FireTV 4K, I have found that it must be a 
mythtv-frontend video profile setting.  For some reason those settings 
get changed with a fresh backend. Once I set them and exit they change 
on the next running of the app. If I get them right and assign a unique 
identifier they still doesn't stick until as least the 2nd time after 
it's setup and exited, launched, and then setup again.

So what I noticed is regardless of LiveTV or Recorded TV, the 1080i 
programs fail and the 720p ones play correctly. Now I just have to find 
the setting I use to use on the FireTV. I think I posted those on the 
Mythtv forum so I'll check there.
