Multimedia, AV We were pleasantly surprised when we discovered (by snooping on its firmware files) that the Pontis MX2020 multimedia device that Geeks.com sent us for a review actually uses Linux (embedded distribution uCLinux, kernel 2.4.19). If it's video, audio, pictures, recording or even basic PDA functionality via its touch screen, the Pontis MX2020 can do it all. And for very cheap too.

My MX2020 is on order and should be arriving any day. I'm hoping I can upgrade the HD to 40gig...I have a spare 40GB 9.5mm HD available. I plan to use PowerQuest DriveImage 2002 and see what happens. Has anyone else looked at upgrading the HD in the MX2020? Thanks.....(20GB is good but 40GB is better!)

no, no one tried that. I suggest you don't destroy the warranty of your order.

If you do decide to destroy the warranty and do something like this. The IUBI site has a download for the complete CD that comes with the PMP2020. It includes a system resore utility that will format and reinstall everything from scratch. If you do it.. let us know how it works!
