These are extremely good, I've purchased three, one for our daughters XBOX One works OK, the other two I've connected to a Raspberry PI and have Freeview available either over the network or remotely via VPN. Watch TV at work :-)

Before people ask how is the Raspberry Pi is configured, two tuners connected to PI and then I'm running TVHeadEnd which includes the required drivers. Then on my other PC's, tablets or phones I have Kodi installed with the TVHeadEnd plugin configured to point to the Raspberry Pi.

No, completely pointless now they removed snap mode, all it would let you do is watch tv through your xbox, instead of directly on the tv

I agree that removing the snap feature was silly and they should have implemented full record/DVR features. However, they can still have their use for some people, who may have an older TV etc. My plasma still is a great picture so I'm not getting rid until it's broke, but the tuner is rubbish and not HD.

This was also a quid cheaper, delivered, a couple of weeks ago, from this same shop, I think.
This gets posted every month and it’s always the same price

I'm also using a few with a Raspberry Pi, TV available to everything on my network then, mainly use it with Kodi on my android boxes.
Can you use a sky dish for this or does it have to be an aerial?

It has to be an aerial capable of receiving the digital channels, a sky dish isn’t compatible sorry.

Aerial. Dishes don't make for good aerials as a rule plus the connector is different.
Thanks I just grabbed one, £4 ain’t bad considering I paid £20 for the first one I bought

No, as above, but you can connect your sky box through your Xbox in order to use voice control via Kinect etc.

I remember when this was posted last time, the 'top' comment was, and still is, someone mocking someone else who had asked if it worked on things like Kodi. Bit of a joke really.

Going to get one for similar reasons.
I also have this and purchased it for £5.00. It's a really good purchase imho. Yes, you can't use it as a DVR but, for under a pint (in some places lol). It's a heat from me
Yes! Buy a dongle that needs to be connected to console which is connected to TV (because it have to be) to watch TV through console on TV to which console is connected. Perfect!!!!

Also probably as available in game as those PS4 pad dongles posted here every month and always out of stock

It does and it does it well. I have had one since launch.

Works perfectly

You can also connect to the TVHE server with a few apps on the Play store (no idea about Apple) and VLC as the player, no need to install Kodi on Android phones or Chromebooks to watch.

Have mine running on LibreELEC 8.2.5 on the Pi. A word of advice, the dongle is very funny about which versions of Kodi it will work on, and I can tell you now it WILL NOT work under a BerryBoot install as BB switches in it's own Kernel and messes with drivers.

If anyone can PM me any info on getting CAMs working on Freeview, if it's possible to do... I've no interest in watching the encrypted stuff but am in the actual project of getting it working!
Seen these in £1 shop

Yes. SD channels also look noticably better than the SD tuner built into my TV... perhaps because the Pi is 1080p and and doing some sort of up-scaling? No idea, but the SD channels look great on this too.

Is it easy to set up onto a pi? I like the idea of being able to access it via android boxes/phones around the house...

It's a little sticky. I made a meal out of it because I was trying to use it with BerryBoot - it doesn't work with BB. If you install LibreELEC from the official website, it's just a matter of installing the requited add-ons (Tvheadend server / and the client) then setting it up via a web browser... yes, you set it all up via your local DNS ips... oh, you can follow the same instructions for the official Pi TV Hat found here... thepihut.com/blo…hat


Bare in mind with this device, you need certain versions of Kodi to get it working which have the special drivers included. You're on your own trying to get it to work in Stretch etc... A fellow above just seemed to reference 'Kodi' for his working example, but in my experience it's only LibreELEC 8.2.5 which works with this out-of-the-box. But for getting Headend configured you can reference the tutorial above.


So if you have experience installing add-ons (all the repos you need are pre-intalled in LibreELEC, just search for Tvheadend in the Add-ons section and install the server and client) and have basic IP address/port experience, it should be quite easy for you.

Have any links to useful guides? Also which pi do you run the tuners on I have a older one doing nothing if its suitable.

Various guides on the later pages here, it's a bit of a faff in current versions of raspbian due to the old 4.14 kernel, raspberry pi foundation said in October they'd move to 4.19 within a few months which will support this out the box. I've got it set up on an rpi 2 and will be doing a few more for family once the much easier 4.19 based images are out.
