Just purchased a very cheap (£6.49) unofficial raspberry pi tv hat and to be fair the quality of the picture is pretty good considering the price. The question I have though, is there a tv tuner that will produce the same or better picture quality as the tuner that is built into my 10+ years old pioneer tv. I have a humax box attached to the tv at the moment and although the picture is slightly better than the pi tv hat, it is still not as good as the on board tv tuner. Am I doing something wrong or are my expectations unrealistic to think that I can get an equivalent picture quality form a computer peripheral. I am in the UK and most of the tv channels that I watch are only SD quality and of course the pi and the humax are attached to the pioneer via hdmi cables and i am pretty sure I have the correct output set on both the pi and the humax, but the picture just does not look as crisp. In fact i would say the humax and pi HD channels are about the same quality as a SD channel just using the pioneer tuner.
Thanks in advance
