Switch LEDs off when no signal

    One broken SD card (putting the Pi back into the case in too much of a hurry!) and a few hours of swearing and I have my Hyperion installation working. I think I still have to do some work to fine tune the colours. If there's sky, for example, the LEDs are more of a lavender colour.

    My main question though. When I switch my Virgin Media box and theres no signal, I get a static effect at the moment - sort of blue on the left and pink on the right. Is there a way I can just make it so all the LEDs go off if there's no signal?

    I've used Hypercon to do my configuring.

    Hi Andy

    I have the same problem.

    My setup is as follows:
    Cable Receiver (UPC Switzerland, EOS BOX) => HD Fury Integral2 => Marmitek Connect HA13 (HDMI2RCA) => PureLink Grabber => RPI 3+ => LEDs

    As long as the receiver is on, all is working fine. But as soon as i turn of the receiver, i only got a blue picture. Grabbing this with hyperion screenshot shows me, that this is somehow a PAL testpicture. I figured out, that the HA13 converter is sending this out as soon as he didn't receive anymore a signal..

    does someone has the same situation?
    or can someone recommend a converter with another behavior?

    of course, i can poll my tv (are you running on HDMI1?) and then enable/disable hyperion with a scrip.. but.. :D
    I'm searching for a more elegant way for solving this.

    thanks for any hint!
