    My setup is a RPi3 + Arduino Nano + WS2801

    The conncetion seems fine. If I run a standalone programm on the Ardunio everything works as expexted. I can control the color of all LEDs.

    For Hyperion I'm using the following sketch



    I also tried this sketch - the inital sequence works, yet I still can not send any color manually



    My hyperion.config.json



    My log looks like this



    If I try to set a color with HyperCon or the Hyperion app nothing at all happens with the LEDs. They stay black.

    Maybe one more thing: If I sart/stop hyperion the LEDs dim up to light purple twice.

    /dev/tttyUSB0 is correct - that is the device that shows up when I connect the Arduino

    Any idea what could be wrong or how to investigate further?

    I found the error: " "type" : "ws2801"," in hyperion.config should be "type" : "adalight",
