Will XBMC (XBox Media Center) work for you? Runs on Linux, I've set it
up and found it to be quite nice. I can't quite tell if it's exactly
what you're looking for, based on the link you gave below, but it's
definitely a robust and powerful free media center that will run on
Linux (and has Ubuntu packages).
