    So sorry Brindosch, I'm agree with you, the Windows Grabber works like a charm with the scaling at 100%.

    I have a Dell XPS 15 with a 4K Display, it so difficult see the icons with the scaling at 100% but it works, thank so much, I hope that this could be implemented in the next releases :)

    Thank you very much @Rick164 your work is awesome and this project/software could be brilliant working with Gigabit Ethernet or WiFi AC, in the future I hope that Raspberry would implement Gigabit Ethernet or WiFi AC technology for better network speed, so this project is the future!

    If I can help you with something, please let me know :)

    For this you only need a basis Hyperion install with protobuffer port enabled in its config (is by default), then install the latest windows client from here:

    https://github.com/hanselb/HyperionScreenCap/releases

    Nowadays has a setup window so you can fill in your Hyperion IP / Hostname etc.. and it should work ootb, only issue when you use > 100% desktop scaling in Windows.

    Thaks for the explanation. So I do need an raspberry with Linux and a working hyperion install right? To bad hyperion doesnt have an windows daemon like ambibox or pristmatik. Altough i coupdnt find it, do you know if In future this might be happening? I found that boblight has an windows daemon. But hyperion is the best. Any way Ayer all I'll proberly stick to linux bases htpc so I don't need to regomfigure kodi and the ambilight driven sodtware

    Yep installation on Raspberry, we have a few guides for that and can choose different distro flavors (prefer Raspbian nowadays):

    https://hyperion-project.org/wiki/2-Installation

    Talked to @Wolph about a Windows version and it might be possible in the future but main focus now is Hyperion.ng (redesigned version) so no eta :)
    With Hyperion and this windows client you can get more or less the same as with Ambibox, both capture and media will work this way but games has always been a tricky one :)
