In the past couple of days I've set up a Raspberry Pi with a DVB-T USB stick running TVHeadend.
The purpose of all this was to get Freeview to a couple of TVs in my house that either a) don't have built-in Freeview decoders or b) aren't near an aerial plug. As a bonus, by using Pis as the clients as well, I get full access to my media library. :-)
Well I'm happy to report it's working beautifully, once I figured out a minor issue with the Freeview Shop website having the wrong frequency information for the Waiatarua broadcasting tower (it says 666MHz for the Sky band, but it's actually 602MHz).
However, I do need to buy a powered USB hub, and am completely unable to find one that I KNOW will work.
So if anyone can suggest a good hub, I would really appreciate it. I need it to power 4 devices, including a couple of the DVB-T sticks, and a 2.5" HDD, so a good amount of power on each port would be ideal.
Most of the ones I see come with 1A power adapters, and that just seems far too low for this.
Thanks in advance!
