Below is my setup, Raspberry Pi 3 Raspbian Hyperion (Hyperion Ambilight Deamon (18524) - Version : V1.03.4) Kodi WS2811 50 LEDs (Connected directly to Rpi through SPI) My config is available here The light work fine normally (i.e. when I play an youtube video through browser). But, when I play video through Kodi, the lights don't respond and stays static. I tried grabbing a screenshot through the hyperion-dispmanx and could see that it is able to grab the picture fine even when Kodi is ON. Code: hyperion-dispmanx --crop-top 0 --crop-bottom 0 --crop-left 0 --crop-right 0 --screenshot Note: One strange thing I noticed is that, the lights do respond to Kodi, if I keep moving my mouse or when I keep a youtube video running in the background, and play some video in Kodi!
