Need help before i go buying the wrong stuff

  • so im planning to start this project on my tv soon

    will have a ws2815 with a esp32 running wled

    for the hyperion i plan to use pi zero and then link between the two

    my hardware is , xbox x, ps5, nvidia shield which has netflix on it, and also the tv has a native netflix on it which i guess if complicates thing i can just have it removed and use only from the shield.

    tv is LG 86UK6500PTB - it is updates so no go on the homebrew software solution.

    currently they are connected to each hdmi port on the tv

    to make things simpler, i have a denon avr2700 that i can run everything through, and output one hdmi to the tv.

    The tv has 2 hdmi output so heres my first question

    1. can i use that 2nd hdmi output into the capture card to save me a splitter ?

    2. as for the capture card, which one will do the trick here? do i need to make sure the card supports HDCP 2.2 before buying in order to run netflix content through it ? or thats only a concern on the splitter side(the avr in this case which to my understanding supports it) still not certain whether i do a esp32 with the led or run it all through the pi zero and only hyperion, i should mention the led strips i have a 144 led per meter, havnt measured yet but i can guesstimate the parimeter of the tv is about 5-6m so were talking nearly 1000 led here, i know the data line on the esp can handle that as i did it already, can the pizero too ? the power line will come from a separate psu of course.

    Have you also tried the LG Crashd method.

    1. If your grabber has the same EDID data and capabilities as your TV, then yes. Because this is actually never possible, it is better to use a splitter with EDID Copy and the corresponding properties that you may need (e.g. 4K 60Hz, Scaler, HDCP, CEC, ARC)

    2. Grabber with macrosilicon Chip

    3. 30 to 60 LED/m is actually optimal for Ambilight. The closer to the wall, the more. At a distance of approx. 6 cm at 30 degrees, the closer to the wall the greater the angle, max. 90 degrees.

    ESP32 for control should work.

    Voltage and GND should be connected approximately every 150 LEDs.
