    Thanks!

    I did fine tune the setup for several days before this result came out.
    Everyone is amazed that I have a Samsung 4ktv with ambient lights on it hahaha

    True.
    I do have the same result with WS2812b btw, but like Jeroen said, it is just a matter of spending (a lot of) time to calibrate everything correctly, from colors to gamma.

    Oversaturation : increase gamma values in the image processing tab

    this is the frame i made out of pvc > 16 and 19mm This makes it possible to adjust the angle of shadow that leds will provide.
    I decided to put the leds not to the wall but shining by the wall, the angle of the leds is big enough for that and this is a nice sollution when your tv hangs on the wall with not really much space to spare from your tv mount and the wall.
    The frame is sticked on the TV with special adhesive that doesn't leave damage/residue after you remove it.
    i bend the frame into the arches of the tv, in that way the leds is everywhere even distance.


    Leds have a light angle of 120 degrees so thats more enough to "play" with the angle/adjustment :)
    i must say i am very happy with this frame because the first frame i made didn't have the angle adjusting option.
    So maybe you get ideas ! :)

    sure i can do that but every setup is different and need alternate calibrations to get the desired effect out of the Ambilight.
    but ofcourse i could make a basic guideline howto get the best result possible.

    if i have time then you are the first on my mind :thumbsup:

    very nice mate, also does the frame act as a diffuser as well or is it just to block and redirect the light to where you want on the wall?

    yeah true on the settings, everyone will have different values depending on the setup.

    :thumbsup:

    the frame is mounted on the back of the tv, its purpose is too hold the ledstrip and shines the lights up down left and right from the tv.
    the picture is from the backpanel of the tv, where the frame is mounted on.

    The frame is also a little smaller in scale so you can't see any lights directly from an viewangle
    tle ledstrip is sticked with his own adhesive tape to the frame, in this way i didn't had too cut the ledstrip at the corners/ can make a fluently corner which makes sure there's also lights where the bend is.

    most setups from frames are placed ON the tv backplate so the lights shines to the wall, my frame is made that the lights shine along the wall.
    with my setup the distance from lights to wall is shorter because most setups and frames have a longer distance from frame to wall and ledstrips are placed on the back and not on the sides like mine


    i hope this helps :)

    ahhhh i see what you mean now, nicely done man esp with the wrap round rather than cutting corners, nice touch with minimal soldering :thumbsup:

    might investigate a frame when tv is replaced and i change to 120 /m, but current setup appears to be doing the job as i got a fair distance from the wall to illuminate :LOL:, luckily the rear curves lets me get a good position with minimal effort, could probably be the best unintended feature of the tv :roflmao:

    yes,


    soldering is very minimalistic and because the ledstrip is only shortened 20leds chance of mallfunction is very low. where i made the cut i roughen up the solder on +5v and GND and connected this also on PSU.
    so powered from both sides.
    most setups needs more light then mine and remember that my leds is only 30L/mtr while most here have them with 60 or even 120 leds!

    i would say the further the distance the light has to travel from tv to wall the more luminance you need. :)
