I have a Raspberry Pi3, running OSMC and kodi (was 18.6?) with Hyperion (NOT NG!!!) using W2801 LED's and all was working fine- I could use Hyperion remote to set colours, if i played a video from Kodi, the LED's changed and matched the video.
Everything is running on a single pi, led's are connected via the spi pins, and tv connected via the hdmi port.
The SD card died, so I built a new card with the latest OSMC image (kodi 19.1) and installed Hyperion.ng. Set the LED's up as w2801, set the number of led's counts for top/bottom/left/right etc and that now works fine with the Remote - i can set effects and they work. Reboot shows the rainbow effect as is set in the web interface.
What i can not get working is the screen grabbing from kodi.
Under Capturing Hardware I have ticked the box, but the only device i have to pick is Framebuffer.
Under led instances if i select LED Output and enable the Live Video, i can sometimes see a black screen with some white boxes (i presume text) in the top left corner, and a hand full of LED's are lit in that corner of the TV. I suspect that this is the Linux console?
The display on the TV however is the full Kodi homepage.
So can anyone guide me or point me to a guide on how to change the output to capture or correct me on where I have gone wrong?
In terms of changes, I'm still using the same PI, psu, and wiring has not been removed - only changes are software so is there an issue with compatibility?
The old Hyperion was just to point it to the kodi install and off it went!
