Which network Media players can run a custom Linux kernal/filesystem with a minimum of trouble?

I am currently running GB-PVR on my media server, and am using Hauppauge MediaMVPs as thin client media players on top of my TVs. Unfortunately, the MVP does not play HD content.

Since several PVR softwares talk to the Media MVP, other Media player boxes could run MVP emulators to be able to work with any server software like GBPVR, BeyondTV, etc., and could take advantage of all the plugins, appearance managers, etc. that those packages offer, and would be able to play HD content as well.

There is a MVP emulator already written for the MVP as part of mvpmc, so a lot of the work may have been done already, and just needs box-specific adjustment to create the emulator.

Thoughts?
