Raspberry Pi and vintage technology enthusiast Martin Mander, has created a new Raspberry Pi TV HAT project that allows you to select channels using a rotary turning dial. “Bring some Analogue control to your Digital TV by using a rotary switch to change channels on a Raspberry Pi-powered vintage TV!”
The Raspberry Pi TV HAT was officially launched by the Raspberry Pi Foundation last month and offers an easy way to transform your Raspberry Pi into a TV receiving device with the addition of an aerial. Watch the un-boxing and review video below to learn more about the Pi TV HAT which is now available to purchase priced at £20. Specification of the Raspberry Pi TV HAT include :
– Sony CXD2880 TV tuner
– Supported TV standards: DVB-T2, DVB-T
– Reception frequency: VHF III, UHF IV, UHF V
– Channel bandwidth:
– DVB-T2: 1.7MHz, 5MHz, 6MHz, 7MHz, 8MHz
– DVB-T: 5MHz, 6MHz, 7MHz, 8MH
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).
