Hyperion not updating colors

  • I’m using a RP3 with an APA102 strip connected by SPI, now I’ve got around 19 leds in my strip as I just want to test it first before doing the “big project”


    Everything connects well but I’ve noticed that the colors displayed by grabbing the raspberry screen are not displayed correctly (as well as in Hyperion android grabber app)


    Also while trying to update the lights by the color wheel in Hyperion.jar it doesn’t work at all, sometimes it change the color after restarting the server, and even after restarting the server the colors are displayed wrong

  • Sounds like the Problem I had. Try downloading a new Hypercon .jar and Make a clean new install. Also create a new .json because most likely the config is broken. Worked for me


    Edit: Did u connect the ground/negative to the pi?

    It worked perfectly, reinstalling all the software helped.


    now I have another problem but I don’t think that is related to Hyperion. I’ve installed Hyperion grabber to my TV (I don’t use any android box or raspberry) but the only thing that is grabbing is the menu, I understand that most probably it will not grab the hdmi signal because it’s coming from another source to the tv and YouTube because of the DRM protection, but I’m not able to play videos from the usb with hyperion, the lights just turn off, maybe you have an answer for this as well

    Maybe try changig the Video Codec on your AVI Converter from PAL to NTSC or other way arround. Also Check the Video Codec in Hyperion .jason

    I’m using my android tv without any other devices, so basically my tv is connected to Hyperion by WiFi and that’s it. I’ve noticed that it works with SW decoding but not with HW decoding, I already asked this question in github and In another thread
