    that way though, you cant have separate picture setting for each device, you have one setting for ps and tv and rpi. what i did was have an hdmi splitter for my htpc and one for my ps4, so i could send each signal to the tv and the avr at the same time

    Hey, thanks for replying! Do you know perhaps which avr he was using just to get some more feedback? also, if both outputs sent 4k or 1080p signal at the same time or if you could have one sending 4k (to your tv presumably) and the other 1080 (for hyperion) ?
    thanks again!

    Hey all!

    Couple of months ago i managed to complete my DIY project and got hyperion up and running thanks to all of you wonderful people and your valuable help.
    Last couple of weeks i've been wondering if i could tweak my setup. at the moment i'm running my htpc and ps4 through my avr, then the hdmi output goes through a 1x2 hdmi splitter, then one goes to the hyperion setup and the other goes to my tv. unfortunately by doing so, i'm losing the ARC features since my tv cannot send sound down to my avr even though the CEC functions work fine. so then, i can use optical to get sound from my tv to my avr, but to do that i have to disable cec functions.
    and so i've been thinking, would a dual hdmi output avr work for me? have the AVR's ARC output straight to the tv and the second one hooked up to the hyperion? any ideas/input on this?
    thanks everyone for your time!

    ok so when i run the command through putty, i get two result while the Arduino is hooked. i get /dev/ttyACM0 and /dev/ttyACM1
    if i unplug it and run the command again, i just get /dev/tty/ACM0.
    i switched the hyperion config file to this:

    meaning i just typed ACM1 in the hypercon hardware output tab. now when i press start on hypercon to start hyperion all of my leds (300 while only 200 are specified) flash white two times and then nothing more.

    Thank you for your swift response. So you suggest i try different ports on my HTPC, correct? i actually tried a second one while i was messing around, but still nothing happened. I will give it a go and try them all and let you know.
    Thanks again!

    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!
