    Hi all,

    I have a beginner problem I'm sure you can help me with ;-)

    Setup is the following:
    rPi 3b+
    107x WS2801 around my 55" TV

    When I have the following config all works fine, my rPi connects to the WiFi, the Rainbow Swirl happens, when starting up, and the AmbiLight works fine with videos played directly on LibreELEC.

    But I would also like to get the Ambilight working for external sources via HDMI, therefore I created the following Config and sent it to the rPi via HyperCon.

    Comparing these two, the only thing changed is the external grabber.

    Then the magic happens. The rPi doesnt connect to the WiFi in the first place as quick as before. Takes some 5-10min. which is strange. And it seems the grabber doesnt work, as you can see in the log:

    Using the LogiLink Audio und Video Grabber USB 2.0 as recommended in several websites. maybe that's the problem? Which one should be used? Or What did I do wrong?

    Thanks for your help, guys :)
