What i/o is used by the TV HAT ?

Wed Mar 06, 2019 2:09 pm

I'm awaiting arrival of my TV HAT today, and I can't find any information about what bits of the interface it uses. I would have thought this would be readily available; perhaps I'm missing it somewhere.

Does anyone know what pins are used? I want to add a few other bits (like a DIY battery-UPS with auto shutdown, etc) and need to know if there will be conflicts.

I found the pinout.xyz site but the TV HAT isn't on there.

It's SPI.

Thank you!

My TV HAT has arrived just now, so it's time to play.

https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/bl ... verlay.dts tells us it's using CE0 so that's GPIO10 (pin#19), GPIO09 (pin#21), GPIO11 (pin#23) & GPIO08 (pin#24)

Sorry, I don't know whether it's using 5V (pin#2 or #4) or 3V3 (pin#1 or #17) and which of the 8 GND pins it's using. You'll have to discover that for yourself.
