it is possible to install ubuntu on a (android) google tv box like this?

I want to make a cheap XBMC box. I have seen success on a ARM processor beagleboard. Google tv boxes dus also run an arm. It needs to run opengl is this possible? If it is possible it can give a boost for ubuntu (tv) and XBMC, a PC for 55 euro's

Update: It has a SV8860 processor, so opengl does not work. so I found a other a AMLOGIC8726 processor

this is exactly what im looking for as well. the best idea I came accross so far is appleTV. The only draw back is no usb port. because ubuntu can boot on apple/intel devices this would work but no usb port kills it for me cause I want to attach keyboard and external hd –  Joshua Robison Mar 14 '12 at 0:25
