Thirded. I know you said you want to run apps other than MythTV, but FYI I
just bought a new Chromecast With Google TV and it runs MythTV Mythfrontend
app and the Leanfront app fine. FYI for anyone else installing
Mythfrontend, you need the 32 bit APK file.

Apologies if you're looking to run Mythbackend on it as well - you
obviously can't do that with one of these devices.
