I wanted to extend my Rapsberry Pi 3 and Kodi based home media centre with the ability to receive live TV signal. So I was really excited when Rapsberry Pi released its new Rapsberry Pi TV μHat recently and I bought one immediately.
Rapsberry Pi3 with Rapsberry Pi TV μHat
Installing my new Rapsberry Pi TV μHat onto Rapsberry Pi 3 was really easy - I used this excellent guide to put it together and make it work under Kodi. But I was a bit affraid what kind of housing I will use to cover the naked circuit boards. I had my Rapsberry Pi3 closed in handy aluminium case which ventilates and cools down the system very well. And when I joined Rapsberry Pi 3 with Rapsberry Pi TV μHat I found out it still might fit the original case! I tried it and it worked - the only problem was there was no hole for the new antena connector.
Here should be a hole for antena connector
So I measured the position where the hole should be and drilled it into quite soft aluminium. I used several sizes of drills and at the end I cleaned the edges with a small round file. The circuit boards now fit the original case now. Hopefully this experience inspires someone.
...but bigger hole is needed!
That is big enough, just should be cleaned with file
