    I too have the issue where dark gray is green and flickering. Unfortunately I don't have a solution for you.


    However, I have a feeling your CEC, ARC, and game lag are most likely caused by your splitter. I run a HDFury Diva and couldn't be happier. Bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.


    Let me know if your Wisofox resolved your dark gray/green issue.

    So I'm basically looking to see how the HDFury Diva Native LED Support compares to Hyperion.ng with WS2801. My set up is currently a RPi 3b+, with a 1080p USB HDMI grabber. There are also hue lights controlled by Hyperion. I have an issue where the whole system struggles with low light images and will display green sometimes instead of turning off. Thinking the diva could be the option.


    These are some the the thing I'm interested in comparing.


    Color accuracy

    Response time

    Brightness response

    Software control

    Anything else you may think it's important



    Thanks in advance!


    I was having issues with some colored lines pulsing across my screen. There was also the dreaded rainbow no signal issue. I was just hoping to remove another item from the system to take out points of failure. I've been messing with some settings. Even overclocked my pi, bad idea, very unstable. What really helped was manually dropping the resolution to 720x480 and forcing 60 fps. I have the decimation at 8 now and it seems to be responsive. I'm still going to mess with stuff until I can get a pi4 and see if that helps.

    So I've changed some setting and it's definitely better. I've increased my decimation to 18, already had smoothing disable, and have set the capture resolution to 720x480. The image in hyperion is super grain and I'm getting some led flashing because of it, but it's way more responsive. Also dark scenes now have green LEDs, which was resolved with the new card, but has returned with these setting. Assuming it's because of the high decimation.

    I second this. I'm planning on ditching my hue hub for a ConBee II and would love to completely remove the hub if hyperion gets integration. For now I'll have to leave the hub for my current set up, but will still move a other lights off.

    The HD Fury Diva is the only thing I've found that will fix your issue. I think they offer something else that would work, but it requires you to have an HDMI splitter that already up/down scales property. Plus the Diva offers a few extra HDMI ports that will work with DV and all the new DHCP standards. I highly recommend a Diva if you want the best out of your 4k display.

    I've purchased https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08FFHFXV3


    Before I had an HDMI2AV converter (Composite I think, the one with the yellow) to a SD grabber.


    Before switching to the 1080p hdmi grabber I feel like my lights were a lot more responsive.


    I'm using WS2801 SPI on a RaspberryPi 3b. Could it be that it's talking longer to process a higher quality image? My decimation is set to 8 and was 4 before. Would upgrading to a Pi4 help this situation?

    I bought this one from Amazon for my project - granted its not 4k but when you think about it, I don't really think 4k for the LEDs is needed. You only have so many LEDs anyway and unless you have a newer pi 3 or 4 you'll likely need to further compress the video input so there is not 5 seconds of lag on the screen.


    I have 60 LEDs/m for my project and so far can't notice any issues with LED Colors with a 1080 grabber even though my input is 4k and my TV is 75in. I'm still testing/building but I can say for sure that it doesn't output anything when my PS5 is off. All my LEDs stay off thru this grabber and its plug and play for me, hyperion saw it without my configuring anything additional.

    I've purchased this USBHDMI Grabber and it works beautifully like Alpha7 states. No rainbow colors with no input; resolved my LED flicker; I also had an issue with dark or gray colors on the screen being displayed as green from the LEDs, this has resolved that too. The colors seem more accurate and brighter as well.


    I'm running Hyperion.NG with Hue Lights and they are also more vibrant and responsive. I would highly recommend this grabber to anyone looking to resolve the above-mentioned issues, or if you are looking to bypass your AV2HDMI converter.

    I want to purchase this. Which version of Hyperion are you using? Classic or NG

    I don't think that the second generation of Vertex can do the HDR > SDR conversion. It's main purpose seems to be to split HDMI and to extract audio.
    You can go with Diva or Vertex/Integral 2 + X4 to achieve what you want. Diva is, of course, newer and only one device (so you might save 2-5 frames delay) but you could try to get a Vertex or Integral 2 (Vertex just has an on screen display which the Integral 2 doesn't has) plus the X4 off of ebay to save some bucks


    After closer inspection, I do see that the Vertex2 doesn't convert HDR to SDR. That's too bad. Diva it is. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

    Hello all,
    I've built my first Hyperion setup and am now looking to get it working with 4K DHR. I've done quite a bit of research and I think I understand the limitations of the system. What I 'v have seen as a solution is to add the HD Fury 4K Diva in the mix so you can have it downscale and convert HDR streams to SDR for the capture device. It seems the limitation is due to it only outputting to the lowest signal quality. I was going to pick up a Diva today but then I came across the Vertex2 for $150 cheaper.


    Has anyone used this instead of the Diva? It looks like it does the same things but without the LED drivers.
