    Hi guys!

    My problem is really similar to https://hyperion-project.org/threads/rpi3-stuck.78/ post, but I don't see any voltage warning icons on the screen. As adviced in mentioned thread I tried to change power supply and microusb cable for my pi. I'm sure that leds have got enought power from it's own supply.

    So when I play 1080p videos the picture blinks and flickers from time to time. It looks like pi perfomance is not enough to capture and analyze the picture properly. I've already tried to enlarge internal frame grabber interval and turn off smoothing in HyperCon config and it helped, but ambilight affect terribly suffers.

    I'm using:
    5V 20A led power supply
    ws2801 led stripe (total 113 leds)

    RPi3 + Kodi over RetroPie.
    config:


    Any ideas? Please help

    do you tested other movies? or maybe a 720p?

    libreelec without hyperion works fine, but when hyperion is installed and video is 1080p lags appear

    Finally, issue is solved. I was using wrong power supply - the reccommended one is 2.5A, but everuthingI tried earlier was not more than 2.1 A.
    Also I find some differences in wire connections between hyperion tutorials and some other projects on the internet. Check it out:

    (5v connected with raspberry)

    with these changes everything works like a charm

    i would not recommended to connect 5v via gpio pins...if you power it with usb you have fuses to protect your board...with gpio pins you power it directly..
