Good work, young Brit. I went through this evolution on my Aspire One today. Having some weirdness with the video resolution that's making the whole megillah into a bit of a trial.

Still working on it. Wish me luck - oh, and I am thinking of putting Android on the box just to see if I can get it to run.
