    Ambilight for ever

  • Hi Dallias,


    Just going to piggy back off your post as I too am a newbie attempting to configure the same setup as you, but I'm running into issues I'm hoping someone smarter than me can help me resolve.


    To answer your initial question, here's the hardware and software I'm using:


    Software:

    Piccap on LG

    Backend HyperHDR on LG (one time use for setup)

    HyperHDR on LG


    Hardware:

    - ESP8266 ESP-12F D1 Mini Module ()


    - 5m SK6812 IP-30 RBG-NW (Natural White) ()


    - 5v 100W 20A PSU to power on LED strip ()


    Wiring Diagram:


    ESP8266 is flashed with the following firmware specific for the SK6812 RBG-NW

    firmware_SK6812_RGBW_NEUTRAL.bin

    from https://github.com/awawa-dev/HyperSerialEsp8266


    HyperHDR LED Hardware Config:


    LED Layout:


    HyperHDR Overview:


    The performance section from the overview page seems to show that the LED strip is communicating with HyperHDR; however I'm unable to get the light to respond to any command sent through Hyperion and the logs (see attached) keeps repeating that it could not detect HyperSerialEsp8266/HyperSerialESP32/HyperSerialPico device no matter which available interface (TTY0/1/2) I used or which USB I used on the back of the LG TV.


    I've been hitting a wall for the past two days troubleshooting this and I'm not certain where to go from here. I really want to get this config running as HyperSerialEsp8266 is supposed to be the best way to achieve ambient lighting with the least input lag. If someone's done a similar setup successfully, I'd love to get some feedback on my setup as it's not very impressive right at this moment.


    I appreciate any feedback!

  • Wow what a comments thanks guys

    I,am looking out to solve mine prblems.


    Just curios why this ledstrip waterproof ???


    - 5m SK6812 IP-30 RBG-NW (Natural White) ()

  • IP-30 = Non waterproof

    IP-65 = Waterproof

    Waterproof stripes have a silicone coating.

  • My apologies. I thought someone might be able to help given HyperHDR is an almost identical fork of Hyperion.


    I'll just drop my solution here in case someone else on the interwebz ends up here.


    Turns out the USB ports on the LG TV I'm using are not capable of RS232 communication. Hence why interfacing through USBSerial (HyperSerialEsp8266) in HyperHDR didn't work.


    I instead flashed WLED on the ESP8622 and connected it through 2.4Ghz WiFi.

    This is a great YT tutorial on configuring an ESP32/8266 with your LED strip using WLED:

    How to Easily Control Addressable LEDs with an ESP32 or ESP8266 | WLED Project

    www.youtube.com


    The 2.4Ghz connection was extremely flaky at first with the ESP8266 connected through micro-USB. I rewired the ESP8266 as pictured below and was then able to access the WLED interface through the ESP8266 static IP and it was smooth sailing afterwards. Configuring the LEDs through HyperHDR using WLED was then a breeze.


    Updated Wiring Diagram:


    My apologies again for posting in the wrong place pclin, but hopefully this helps save someone's hairline in the future.

    Hello pclin where is the software coming from ???


    Thankks for the info iCanHazSkillz but how do i connect the espn board to mine tv or does that goes over wifi


    &thumbnail=1


    And what is the best solution to connect this the red or the black solution ?

    I mean first hdmi to the receiver or first with hdmi to the tv.

    If the AVR can handle all formats of the TV then black.

  • Just a side note, you can run Hyperion on the LG TV too :)


    yes I know and I have hyperion on mine LG tv but I,am confused or I don't know how to connect the led strip or the esp board to mine tv

    Or is everything over wifi

  • HyperSerialEsp USB or Wifi


    You will probably need drivers for LG USB

  • The esp is connected over WiFi in my current setup.


    While everything is working fine. I find there's a noticeable delay to the ambilight setup.


    I didn't know there were USB drivers for LG tv available so I might try hyperserialusb again.
