I'm on the hunt for the most straight fwd and error-free LED strip light for running hyperion.
This question stems from me trying to use a "RGBW SK6812" LED strip i had left over from a previous project, and failing miserably in getting a working hyperion going! doh!
If it matters, I am using it with a "raspberry pi 3 model b" using the gpio pins. (I seemingly have the grabber end of things working ok)
I did find this:
some of you don't know which LEDs to buy/choose. I found a overview with common LEDs:
We highly recommend the 4-Wire/clocked/synchronous Chipsets! They work directly on RPis SPI-Port without big known issues.
The 3-Wire/nonclocked/asynchronous Chipsets for example the WS2812B often leads to problems and require additional Hardware like an Arduino!
Last Update: May…
and it states "We highly recommend the 4-Wire/clocked/synchronous Chipsets! They work directly on RPis SPI-Port without big known issues" but then the table underneath doesn't seem to specify (or at least I can't figure it out!) which might be the 4-Wire/clocked/synchronous chipset variety.
any tips for an elderly gentlemen appreciated!
