The Raspberry Pi TV HAT allows you to receive digital terrestrial TV broadcast systems which includes DVB-T and DVB-T2 on a Raspberry Pi.

With the board you can 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 TV HAT 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 2, 3 or 3+ to do this.

The Raspberry Pi TV HAT allows you to receive digital terrestrial TV broadcast systems which includes DVB-T and DVB-T2 on a Raspberry Pi. This means that you can 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 (including PCs, tablets, smartphones (via apps), media centres and more)

The TV HAT can be used on all Raspberry Pi boards when running as a backend (server for other devices on the network), however when receiving and viewing TV directly on a Raspberry Pi it is recommended to use a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ (or older Raspberry Pi Model 3) to do this.

The TV HAT features a Sony CXD2880 TV tuner supporting DVB-T and the second generation DVB-T2 TV standards.

Thanks Mods for sorting non-prime.
I guess the only reason you get that if you don’t have access to internet for iptv and limited to tv over air? Or am I missing something?

Yeah and also if you wanted to stream a TV signal over network/media centre.
Possible solution could be in a motorhome, caravan, trucker etc.

Won't be eveyones cuppa tea but it's cheapest by a good bit

Nice! I like the set up.
So I could just plug this into my PC, attach my antenna cable to it and watch TV on my monitor?

I don't think you can as the size of the card/pins are to fit a Pi.
There's are other cards out there which will do what your after but probably best to get a USB fitting one - saves faffing around

Don't think the Xbox one tuner works in Windows as far as I know. Fine on Linux though.

My understanding is that there are 6 "bouquets" of channels .. so you'd need 6 of these to cover everything.
Its interesting but the truth is that the usability is all about the software .. I use wintv8.5 (win10) from hauppage and it works pretty well, (interface is a bit small for a TV .)
What sort of software setup would power this ?
just to add the quality of picture is entirely down to the strength of signal ... a good rooftop aerial is needed to avoid "£$%

I haven't set the full solution up and I don't plan to have 6 tuners 4 will be enough to serve everything j need proberbly over kill at that as no one in the house really watches standard TV any more.

Roof Arial I have is pritty good only addition I will need is a splitter/booster. But it will all run off a raspberry pi I've seen others who have done this allready. Atm for the single tuner I'm running it's just plugged into the living room pi which runs libreelec with the tvheadend server add-on

You can use DScaler with that as an alternative software... or at least you could 10 years ago when broadcast TV was relevant (I see it hasnt been updated in about that long) deinterlace.sourceforge.net/
An example of a setup of this could be:
TVHeadEnd->TVHeadEnd Plex Proxy -> Plex

With this setup you can then watch the content anywhere under a multi app UI + able to record programs if you have a Plex pass.
Any chance of keeping on topic?

Is that with door locked or without
Might sound silly question but can you run multiple hats off one pi? For instance a PoE and this?
Having tried a Pi in the past and giving up due to the sheer faff, I would recommend a hdhomerun quattro

Can it be used to pick up radio channels ?

Thx

So I need to pay the BBC a subscription to use this?
Cheap receiver but you still wont be able to get the channels on the T2 multiplex if you don't live in the covered area. Only way to get those channels would maybe be the Freeview play app. Would check if the T2 multiplex is covered in your area before getting this.

Why not, it may amaze you to find I actually view using a television set rather than watching a phone or tablet.

If it transmits BBC programs, and you watch them, yes.

Is it capable of receiving HD channels?


According to a Q&A/review on Amazon, it appears that it does receive HD signals.
Thanks OP. Tried doing it myself with a Pi 3b and one of those cheap Xbox Digital USB sticks but the Raspbian version wasn't new enough. This looks ideal as I want to use my Plex server to record digital TV.
There's a thing around called libreelec which runs on rpi3 and 4 and has tvheadend available which allows you to set it up as a TV tuner as well as playing back all your local media. I've been running it for several years (from when it was openelec) with rpi3 and now 4. It records in HD too if you have access to the broadcast from your local transmitter. It will need an aerial cable. I don't have this adapter so don't know if it's supported by libreelec, mine is a PC TV DVB-T2 USB stick.

As for the channel 'bouquets' - more exactly known as MUXes - there are 6 of them and they contain several TV channels each. The software on your rpi will change to the correct MUX for the channel you want to record so unless you want to record one channel from each MUX simultaneously, you are unlikely to need 6 of these. Theoretically you can record/watch more than one channel at a time if they are in the same MUX. To watch/record 2 channels from different MUXes at the same time you need a separate tuner for each MUX.

If you're aiming to record to the sdcard that is in an rpi then it will need to be a decent one as writing an HD video file could want 2GB/h and cheap one will have trouble with that.
