This Raspberry Pi TV-uHAT is designed to receive digital terrestrial TV broadcast systems, including DVB-T and DVB-T2. With this board it is possible to receive and view TV on a Raspberry Pi, or create a TV server that allows you to stream received TV over a network to other devices. The uHAT can be used on all Raspberry Pi boards when running as a backend server for other devices on the network.
Performance when receiving and viewing TV on a Pi can vary and it is recommended to use a Raspberry Pi 3 B or B+ to do this. Raspberry Pi TV uHAT follows a new form factor of HAT which is detailed in the product brief. The board comes with a set of mechanical spacers, a 40 way header and an aerial adaptor.
The software we recommend for decoding TV streams and viewing content is TVHeadend. Instructions for setting this up are in our guide to Getting started with the TV HAT.
