    Currently I am using the Analog to USB UTV007 capture device to run my led lights connected to Rasp PI 3B+ using Hyperion on OSMC. I would prefer to get rid of the HDMI to Analog converter. Does anyone have any suggestions on if/where to buy such a device if it is available?

    Thanks!

    I got the same thing from AliExpress for $15.39 including shipping to the UK

    I have got this working with the latest Raspian build (as at 20-JUN-2020) on a Raspberry Pi Zero WH.

    You do need to do the standard: "no-change" in the .json file though to get it to work.

    I find that the USB Grabber gets pretty hot in use. Not sure how long it will last!
    But it does work. Saves all the HDMI to RCA conversion before going to the Grabber.

    Dont mean to hijack the thread but do these devices work when you play DRM apps like Netflix or YoutubeTV?

    Yes I have watched Netflix through my AppleTV through it.
    My AppleTV HDMI output goes to one of the inputs in my AV receiver and I feed the output of the AV receiver into an HDMI splitter - one output directly to the TV and the other to the frame Grabber. I have not encountered any DRM issues so far. The lights definitely reflect the edge of the screen image.

    Which grabber do you have? Also is your Apple TV the 4K model? Im using Hyperion Android Grabber with my Nvidia Shield, which is fantastic, but it lacks DRM support so I only really get Hyperion for Plex and Youtube currently. Really excited to hear you can use Netflix with this, guess my spending on this project isnt done yet lol

    That's OK.

    I forgot to say what type of Apple TV I have - it's the latest 32GB 4K one.
