Hi there! Noob installer here and first PI/Backlight project
So after hours of scouring the forums and google, I figured it was time to make a thread.
-I've got Hyperion alpha 10 (was previously running 6) up and running.
-Got the capture card setup and showing a live preview so I know thats working right.
-Both the Pi and the LEDs are on the same ground from the same source.
-Using Rasperry Pi 3 B+ with the GUI desktop installed (I have a feeling this is probably related to why i'm having such issues)
-I have this installed despite instructions to just use raspian lite or Hyperbian because for whatever reason I cannot get WIFI working without it (Ive done the wpa supplicant and spent hours on this, cannot find a fix, even worked when I initially got it! But I digress, just giving context)
Anyways, before I was getting 0 response from the lights at all. I found a thread saying to disable the PI's audio in the terminal as it might be conflicting with GPIO 18 and that seemed to have kind of helped. At least now the lights are flickering to different random colors instead of just hanging there stalled out.
So LEDs and Hyperion are working but I'm just getting garbage outputting on to them.
If anyone has some ideas on where to go from here? Honestly this PI 3 has been nothing but a nightmare from the second I've turned it on and will probably just pick up a Pi 4 since the one I have for a arcade cabinet is working perfectly, but I figured i'd at least ask before dropping 100$
