    Directv DVR to Mythbuntu possible?

    I have a fully functioning directv DVR left over from when I switched away from directv. Is it possible to simply install mythbuntu onto this directv dvr so I can be left with a Mythbuntu system?

    Thanks,
    Randy

    Nope sorry. DVR and other such boxes don't have much access to the software they contain, and installing a operating system onto one is near impossible.
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.
