I did do some looking around on xbox-linux.org, but the hardware mod
article I found is almost 3 years old and describing how to flash the
xbox, nothing about a new chip. It also requires using a game w/special
save games and such. A search on their site for DuoX2, the cheapest
chip I could find that appears to work, came back with 0 matches.
If there is a way to flash the bios without using an old game/game
saves/etc and without pulling the hard drive and connecting it hot to a
PC I'd probably give it a shot.
At the moment I'm leaning toward just buying the DuoX2 chip and
installing Xebian, but I'm still open to suggestions. I may take a
quick trip to the local GameStop to see if I can find the proper version
of the proper game.
Any other suggestions, is the HD connection worth it (can the xbox as a
mythtv front end keep up)? Does the xbox remote work well?
