So i had managed to get the ambilight working using raspbian and it was all working fine except i hadn't managed to get black border detection.
I'm using a raspberry pi 3b+ with a splitter which goes to the av converter set to ntsc and to the UTV007 into the pi.
I had to disconnect it straight from the power source before shutdown and now the video grabber wont work on hypercon.
I just get a black screen, and when I look at the log I get video grabber started and immediately stopped
*Update: the hyperion app works fine with every stock effect working fine so its not a faulty LED
