Live -view from K-3 onto a Kindle Fire HDR ?

This may have been asked already, but I couldn't find it (sorry if it has!).

I have the K-3, and I'm wondering if anyone knows if I could use a Kindle Fire just as a live-view platform?
I don't necessarily want (or need) to engage the shutter, change settings, etc. I just want the Kindle for it's bigger view size.
My sight is not what it used to be, and especially since I shoot mostly landscapes, I don't need remote triggering capacity.

Any thoughts/advice? Thanks!

Most tablets don't have any video options. There are some called "field monitors" which do this. It would be great to use a mainstream tablet for this though.

I think perhaps the FLU card can be used in this manner, though it can be tricky.

Has the FluCard been tested using the Fire's "Silk" browser? Silk is sort of a strange beastie.
