Raspberry Pi TV HAT Quad Tuner and Multi standard

The Pi TV HAT is great but, To be truly great HAT it would great to have Dual Tuner or even better Quad Tuner build in. Why Dual/Quad Tuner?

Most of the carriers I have flown on have USB charges build in on the newer planes ..

Re: OpenGL Driver screen issues

The GL driver currently ignores overscan/underscan settings, which is what is causing your problem. In that case I think there's a misunderstanding about what 'overscan' and 'underscan' mean. My monitor displays nothing (black) when the GL Driver is enabled, which suggests that the HDMI signal is o...
