Is it possible to put a different version of Android OS on an Android TV box? If so where do I get a legal copy of the Android OS? Is there an idiots guide of how to do it or am I overthinking it?

Why do I want to do that? Android 10 won't play some of the applications that I have on an older box running Android 7 ( like NewsOn).

Thanks

Only IF the manufacturer provides and upgraded firmware. You likely can't load a generic android OS on those.
