Hello, does anybody use here WS2801 leds with OpenElec-Kodi? I have installed Hyperion but leds not lighting during video watching, just when Kodi boots.

i use a Raspberry Pi 2 with LibreElec 10.2 media center. I needed to update from LE 9.2, there i used a HyperCron/Hyperion installment with WS2801 leds. Leds are connected to the GPIO clock and data pins. Everything was fine, the leds worked perfectly.
Today i needed to upgrade to LE 10.2 and my previous Hyperion deployment wasn't able to start because of python dependencies... ok no problem, lets update something.
I found this Hyperion-project site and i've installed and set everything what i needed, but leds not lights when i navigate in my Kodi or starts a video.
I made the following steps:
-wget -qO- https://git.io/Jz5Qp | bash
-its finished and i can reach the control panel at 8090 port.
-i set the ws2801 controller, i changed the byte order to RBG and configured the numbers and positions of my leds.
When i start my Rpi machine the rainbow effect lights. When i go into the Effect configuratior, every effect lights fine.
Maybe something is missing to start the lighting when video starts, or Kodi needed something else?
Thank you for tips
