OK, I'll try that and report back. (Will take a while, on my super-slow-Broadband.)

Thanks, Gordon. Good, but no cigar! :D

I've seen similar, but .... the Belling-Lee/coax socket is not panel-mounted. :(

Pi 3B+ onboard WiFi failure?

I have an early Pi 3B+ (purchased in March 2018) which has been working perfectly until yesterday. Then, it wouldn't connect to wifi. Raspbian Stretch GUI showed the (previously attached) SSID name, and if I tried to reconnect, it asked for the password (already filled in) and pressing OK did nothin...

Re: New TV Tuner from HQ

Some good ideas for alternatives there. Thanks! For a neat solution (acceptable to SWMBO) I was thinking of mounting a Pi+TVhat in an old set-top Freeview tuner box (available at all good car-boots for a quid or two). But the Belling-Lee sockets on those are usually either PCB-mounted or fixed to a ...

Re: New TV Tuner from HQ

For the Pi 3B+ I can imagine a neat case with an MCX (I thought it was SMA but was wrong I believe) to Belling-Lee pigtail cable to allow the RF socket to be neatly mounted - rather than hard attached to the uHAT. I too have been looking for an MCX-to-Belling-Lee pigtail, but can't find one that in...

Re: New TV Tuner from HQ

Regarding the antenna connection: I understand there is a female coax adapter included in the TV Hat kit, but is the connector actually on the TV Hat board known as an "MCX" socket, taking one of these plugs?: http://www.headspin.plus.com/store/forums/mcx.jpg ( I plan to case the unit, and I will be...

Re: Wifi Network not detected in OSMC and LibreElec

It sounds like your Wifi network (SSID) is maybe HIDDEN?

This is a setting in your router (not the Pi) so you might want to check that.

Let it set on the broken card, joining the cad and stick together, then pull out?

Re: Self Adhesive PCB supports

If you can find 2.5mm ones, they'll do.

Alternatively, if you're happy to carefully drill out the Pi's PCB mounting holes to 3.0mm, that should work too, assuming you can find 3.0mm PCB mounting pillars.

Does the above answer mean one can hijack and re-use the ACT and PWR LEDs as general purpose LED indicators, under program control?
