Pi as a DVB-T2 STB?

Looking for a DVB-T2 STB on line and the choice doesn't seem very
I was wondering if you could build one from a Pi.
All it should need, presumably, is some kind of (USB?) TV tuner and Kodi.
As a bonus it should be able to record and pause.
Anyone done this?

The HDHomeRun is an expensive but very flexible TV tuner that puts the output on the network where it belongs . It is supported by Kodi, MythTv, its own player and others.

Yes. PI B+ (that was the newest available when I set it up). xbmc & tvheadend usb 4Tb hard drive for my entire DVD & CD collections + DBT recordings. usb DBT dongle
I prefer xbmc or rather I don't like the way it became broken as it evolved into kodi. YMMV.

It gives me live TV and radio as well as EPG and PVR functions including pause and resume live TV.
