Default Modification for internal TV Tuner on Mini 1012, maybe? - 02-22-2016, 02:23 PM

I'm working on replacing my current Mini 1012 motherboard (which has only 1 mPCI-E header) with the motherboard that has 3 mPCI-E headers - 1 being used for Wifi, 1 being used for Broadcom, and 1 empty slot.

For the empty slot, I was considering the idea of putting a mPCI-E TV Tuner card from an older Mini 10, into my newer Mini 10 (which was never intended to be used with a Tuner.)

Then I would simply buy an IPX to MMCX cable at the correct length. I'd drill a hole large enough for the MMCX port to go through - between the USB and SD card reader on the left side - and I'd probably have to superglue the MMCX port to the inside of the chassis or something.

Does anyone know if there is even the slightest possibility that this would work?
