im new to this and i have follow some treads about building a own ambilight.
198 leds behind my TV
im using a rpi 3B with own adapter.
hdmi splitter 1x2 1080p
usb capture card to rca
yesterday i get the strip to light up with hyperion, but now its totaly dead.
the strip is connected to gpio 18 at the Rpi.
it has it own powersupply ( computer powersupply)
when i check the +5v at the powersupply it gets 5,7v (29A max), maybe it killed the ws2812B ?
some people says i must have a type of resistor between the +5v at the power supply and the strip but i havent use that.
can i controll the strip at any way? i dont know if the whole strip is dead or only the first of the leds
