Greetings to the community and thank you for all your amazing work.
I decided to dive into the DIY Ambilight project, got a 5m ws2812b strip, a 5V20A power adapter to run the strip and an Arduino Uno. My current setup consists of a custom made Intel based HTPC running LibreELEC.
So i hook the Arduino up on my PC, download the Adalight and FastLED libraries and upload the sketch that i read is mostly used:
The LEDs go blink and so far so good.
I then install Hyperion through LibreELEC's repository and connect Arduino to my HTPC via USB. I run Hypercon on my pc, connect through SSH and follow instructions to eventually upload this:
And that's about it. No rainbow effect on my strip, no single colour when trying the colorpicker through SSH, nothing.
Wanted to use an external grabber as well but i imagine i'm pretty far off until that's happening.
Couldn't find people using an HTPC while running the Hyperion Ambilight, most use Rpi's so i couldn't find much help in the forums.
Any assistance would be deeply appreciated. Many thanks in advance for your time and effort!
