I suggest that you take a look at  the hardware specs for the Dragon II
PVR at http://mythic.tv/system_specs.php. This site shows the Knoppmyth
reference platform (KRP) for the PVR.
The folk at http://mysettopbox.tv have collaborated with mythic.tv to
formulate the Dragon II which can be purchased as a complete running
system or built by an individual using or guided by the KRP. I saw The
Master, Cecil Wilson of mysettopbox.tv, perform a clean install of
knoppmyth on a Dragon II and it installed and ran smoothly. This was at
the SCALE event a month ago (Southern California All Linux Exposition).
I have no stake in this but would like to have a good free and open
