Re: Another Pi TV HAT question

I would have assumed that this would have worked but (assuming you are running VLC on the same Pi as TVHeadend then it implies to me that TVHeadend is listening on a specific IP address.

Re: PoE hat needs stackable headers

Presumably it was to keep down the price and keep the overall height down so that it would fit in cases more easily.
However, they did promote 3rd-party push through pins on launch day - see the blog

I was fortunate to receive a prototype of the modified HAT to test. I've written up my analysis, test results etc. So if you're interested in learning more and seeing how the HAT has been modified, take a trip over to: https://www.martinrowan.co.uk/2018/11/raspberry-pi-poe-hat-official-modified-ver...

Did you mean you can, or can't get a good signal? Im planning on buying that one for flight tracking and getting a free business account with flightradar24 :)
