    Dear all,
    I just received my SW2812 led strip, hdmi to av converter, usb video grabber and an hdmi splitter :)
    I would like to setup an "Ambilight" mooding when I'm playing movies from my Minix Neo U1 android box.
    I saw that such setup is possible with a raspverry Pi, but what's about a dedicated computer under win10 or ubuntu?
    Can we connect the led strip on a cmputer and run Hyperion from it?
    If yes can you pease share with me the how to and wiring tutorial?
    Many thanks in advance
    Amine

    slm,

    with your desktop-pc you dont have spi pins :) so you need an arduino

    raspberry->hyperion->spi->leds
    ubuntu->hyperion->arduino->leds
    windows->send data to hyperion on an raspberry->spi->leds
