I'm completely new to Hyperion but have built custom lighting setups in PC's for a while (so I have lots of spare parts around).
Should it be possible to drive a generic 30-LED 5v strip designed to be driven by a PC header (or controller) directly from Hyperion? If so, how would you set up the strip in Hyperion? Which controller would you select, for example?
I did try it; wired a JST connector to an external 5v 10A supply + GPIO18 and connected the strip. Nothing happened at all. Stayed dark, no matter what I tried in Hyperion, and through startup and shutdown. Curious whether it should be possible to make it work and if not why not - what's so different about these strips sold for PC's vs the ones typically used with Hyperion etc?
