Install Ubuntu on 9200t

#1
Have had a mad idea of what to do with my old 9200t now that I have got a fox hd.

Can you install Ubuntu on it and turn it into a media PC. Thought it might be a way of getting sky player to work as getting sick of waiting for humax to add what they advertised.

Anyone know if it is possible?

I think in practical terms it would be extremely difficult to get Linux running unless you are familiar with writing device drivers. If you simply want Sky player then install the custom firmware on the HDR and the Portal-Xtra package and voila you have Sky Player. Humax did all the development and testing work but I assume some commercial factor stopped it being publicly released.
