I just plugged a 1.5tb seagate external hard drive into a usb hub thats plugged into the mk802 and it worked great. I have had power directly hooked AC to the mk802 this whole time by the way...

OK! great news! so there's no need to use a usb hub that is externally powered!

Just in case you didn't know, mele a1000 media player has same CPU+GPU than mk802 and ubuntu can be run there. So, maybe you can find some info regarding 1080p and maybe also about wifi in pages related to it running ubuntu! Just a thought!
The image he's using was originally for the mele a1000, that's part of the reason for wifi not working (the a1000 and mk802 don't appear to use the same wifi chipset).

Yeah, makes sense. Any ideas on how to update with the right drivers?

To start with, could you run 'lsusb' and 'lspci' on the box and paste the output?

You can run them in any terminal. I can't recall what the name of the terminal provided in Ubuntu is. If you don't have ethernet setup, you should still be able to copy the output from the terminal into a text file, then copy that to a thumb drive to move over to your desktop.

They are commands, much like using dd yesterday, just type them at the prompt and hit enter.

I found "USB: 0BDA:8176 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN Adapter USB:" on http://wiki.debian.org/rtl819x that make me think it was a realtek 8188cus? although the MK802 isn't advertised as having a 802.11n card, so I'm not sure.
