I’m totally new with Raspberry Pi and have purchased a Pi 4 4Gb and DVB TV HAT.
Following the guide:
[Getting-started-with-the-Raspberry-Pi-TV-HAT.pdf (raspberrypi.org)] to get it to run on the Pi with monitor and keyboard, I get all the way through page 1.
When I put in the IP address to install with the browser - I get an error “address is unreachable” (either on the Pi or another PC).
I’ve updated, uninstalled and re-installed TVHeadend still with no luck.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Hi Dave, Welcome to the forum!
Was this the guide you were following?
If so, you’re stuck on this step, right?
Could you send us the output of the
ifconfig command? Also a photo of your Pi and HAT?
Keen to get to the bottom of this with you!
Yes that’s what I’m following. Thanks for the offer to help.

Cheers for posting that info!
Just to confirm, are you replacing
raspberrypi.local in the address given in the guide with
192.168.8.114? Most of the time raspberrypi.local will work, but it relies on the Bonjour service, which some machines don’t have installed/enabled.
If you have a desktop environment on your Pi, you could try
http://127.0.0.1:9981/extjs.html from the Pi’s browser.
As this doesn’t need any external networking, the
loopback interface is what directs the packets back at the Pi.
Alternatively, I like to check that other devices can see my Pis, and that the right ports are open. I personally like the Net Analyser app for Android, but a simple ping command from other devices on your network will work out whether they can reach .
Keen to see how you go with these steps!
I had the right address. However, I tried a different network and it now seems to be OK.
I’ll move through the rest of the guide.
Thanks for your help.
