    Hey this tutorial really helped me.

    Parts I used were

    60/m APA102 LEDS 206 all together
    no soldering all clips
    RPI 3
    5v 20 Amp Switching Power Supply Converter

    Surprisingly after the configuration the only problem was that one connector wasnt tight enough. I pressed it with my finger and not it is all good to go.

    This was one of my first projects where something didnt go really wrong lol.

    I did a fast color calibration this morning and it wasnt too difficult.

    my only issue has been that im using one of the cheap SUPERNIGHT switching power supplies and when I wire the 5v from the rpi3 and put it with the 5v from the LED I get the rainbow up top and really bad performance. Right now it is being powered by a separate 5v 2.1a usb and I do not want it like that.

    After just looking it up I may have it set to 220v mode instead of 120v mode.(wonder how its still working so well though) Ill have to check when I get back. Hopefully this is the problem.

    What are your suggestions for other settings such as the linear smoothing setting? Also is there any other types of smoothing?

    Measure the voltage with a multimeter and check if it is calibrated correctly

    "Hyperion also allows for video capture methods so that you can use it for every HDMI input source be it a console or set top box " . I have satellite TV tuner to receive the video signal to Hyperion .

    The question in what way ?

    hi everyone. im having a trouble with the setup, do i really need to use Winscp to upload the hyperion.config.json file to the /etc folder of osmc? been trying to send config and start/stop button but still no response from the leds. a little walkthrough here will be very much appreciated. or you can just email me @ pinheads998@gmail.com.

    THANKS A LOT!

    Installing it on raspbian as user pi succeeds but no color information is actually captured. Should one install it using the OpenELEC/LE option as root on a rpi3 running raspbian with kodi?

    Have you activated kodiVideoChecker?

    Hi. Very new in hyperion and following your guide for my setup which done just now: RPi3+APA102+OSMC

    Everythings is functioning. But I've no idea about grabber.

    Lets say i'm playing games or watching movies via PC, how to have the led to react with the game @ movie video output? Can show me step by step? Sorry for the inquiry, I really appreciate the help.

    Thanks

    Ok I have never wanted anything to work more in my life. It hasn't been the software that is killing me but the wiring. I triple and quadruple checked to make sure everything is wired. 5v to 5v ground to ground, but all I ever get is two leds to light up one on a strip and one on another. I am losing my mind.
