    Not much in way of web search apart from this (see link).There's also other xbmc derivatives called open elec.However i have no idea how you'd get either to work on the boxes,your best bet is to start a thread in the xbmc/kodi forum (kodi is xbmc with it'sname changed as xbox is no longer relevant)
