Here is my setup
- pi zero
- logitech c270 camera
- apa102 (only 80 leds)
- 4 meters cable between leds and pi zero
- woodeen frame
All made of spare part, on my older TV i had an hyperion setup with pi zero, usb grabber + splitter.
I changed because of two reasons
- new TV, PS5, HDMI 2.1 : i didn't want compromise on HDMI flux and cheap 2.1 splitters doesn't exist
- Always add problems. sometimes grabber or splitter stop working for a second or mire. I restarded Hyperion instance 3 times a day. Sometime image stopped from beeing on TV
A wooden frame, pi zero in the old box containing all grabbers/splitters, hdmi cables.. He has planty of room now
Why the frame? Because ma TV is far from the wall (my room looks like a slice of pizza)
With the frame the lefty led strip can light up the left wall
Say hello to the camera
The green button switch on/off the system
The cable from pi to leds is hiddent between the floor and the wall. But it works with ESP8266 too.
Honestly, I thought the result would be "blah" and I am pleasantly surprised :
Next step :
- Replace the big white box with a small wood box to fit pi zero + webcam
- Bring the button closer to the couch avoid moving the camera by error when swichting off
More infos here (camera tweaks, long cable):
I try to setup Hyperion with my Pi Cam, but I have issues calibrating. I took a picture to show the problem on a white screen.
Due to capturing the screen image via camera and the viewing angle the camera detects a certain "gradient" where it should be white.
I mean I can related why this happens but I dont know if I can compensate it.
Is there any option in hyperion how to correct for this or any other suggestions? Is the Camera the problem?
Any help would be appreciated.
