    Hi!
    I used a long time Raspberry B+ with Openelec and Hyperion for my ambilight on HDMI. This was working very fine.
    A few days ago, i changed the Amilight from Pi B+ to Pi 3 and Raspberian (Jessie lite) with Kodi 17.x and Hyperion V1.03.02
    Ambilight is working fine when i am watching a movie without black borders on top and buttom. When i am watuching a movie with black borders, only the led stripe on the bottom will flashing, the led stripe on top is not working.
    This is my BB part in Hyperion Config

    // BLACKBORDER CONFIG
    "blackborderdetector" :
    {
    "enable" : true,
    "threshold" : 0.18,
    "unknownFrameCnt" : 600,
    "borderFrameCnt" : 50,
    "maxInconsistentCnt" : 10,
    "blurRemoveCnt" : 1,
    "mode" : "default"
    },
    I was reading a lot messages in other forums about the problem with BBD and changed a lot of things in this config file, but nothing happens.
    What can be the problem with BBD only on the top of TV Screen?
    Thanks for support!
    Regards Mercy

    Have you tried bumping the "threshold" up?

    My current "threshold" is set to 10, seems to work well for me.

    Hope it helps.

    Hi!
    Thank you you for your reply. I played a little with crop factor and now it's running!
    Very nice!
    Thank you!

    Hi Mercy,

    I have the same problem, top border is not working. What did you do to fix it? Did you change the 'treshold'? What do you mean with 'crop factor'?

    Kind regards,

    Peter
