    Hi All,

    I am new to Google TV and this forum. I am planning to buy either Logitech Revue or Sony Google TV Box. Since both the boxes have more than 2 USB ports, I am planning to do the following set up. Please let me know if thats possible.

    Install Ubuntu + torrent client on USB drive. (I usb port is used)
    On other port connect external drive and download all torrent files on this drive
    Play the torrent files using Google TV.

    I am basically trying to avoid HTPC.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks
    Mav

    I don't think placing Ubuntu on an external drive and connecting it to Google TV will do what you think it will do. Besides, as I understand Matt Munday the developer of the Swarm Torrent Client on Android is working on optimizing the app for Google TV. I think that would be a bajillion times easier than trying to perform the technical voodoo that you're suggesting.
