    Re: Raspberry Pi TV HAT is a DVB-T2 television tuner

    IMO given the requirement for a Pi 2, 3 or 3+ to make full use of this, and the Zero form factor, I expect that a new revision of the Zero is coming out with a more powerful SoC.

    A Zero + This would be a neat DIY TV tuner to enhance a computer monitor or similar.

    If you still care about broadcast TV.

    That was it, I was thinking 'oh this is really good, save having to have a tv near an aerial' then I realised that we can just Chromecast everything from a phone or watch it on a computer. Still, it's very neat and would definitely have it's uses where bandwidth is limited or expensive for streaming!

    Re: Raspberry Pi TV HAT is a DVB-T2 television tuner

    I was wondering about dropping a new TV cable from the loft into the living room, but that is a faff. Now I'm wondering if I can use MythTV installed on a Pi to make a WiFi enabled TV aerial

    Picked one of these up along with a Pi Zero W - can anyone recommend a case that will house it all?!

    The cheapest way to get a case to cover a custom HAT too is to build one out of Lego IMO.
