    I hope to see more setups from other people in the future but some people need to start . So here is my Hyperion setup.

    About a year ago I finished my first setup after a lot of error. My technical knowledge isn't that great but its getting better and better while working on this project. That's why I updated a week ago to v2.0 with a raspberry pi 3 :). I dont have that much photo's of the whole building progress so I try to give you a little idea through some of them.

    The first thing I did was buying 3 meters of aluminium strip to make a frame that I could fit behind my television and wall mount.

    I used this type of strip:

    With a saw I made the ends of the strip fit in a 90 degree corners and glued the frame together with 2 component epoxy. After a day the epoxy had hardened and made a really strong frame so mounted in the APA120 led strip.

    It works! :D

    This is how it fits behind my television. Fits perfect between the bracket of my wall mount and the tv.

    Still work in progress, it's less messy now because I fitted the rpi behind my television. I also bought 2 living color lights to extend this setup but still have some issues with getting both systems on together.

    So what do you think? If you have any questions let me know.

    Big thanks to everyone who made this project possible! :omg::thumbsup:

    Realy good!! Can you give us more details about the stripes...
    In addition to that I would like to ask you, if you could get a good colour calibration.
    If yes, I would like to know your vallues.

    Looks great, one question though:

    How did you connect the frame to the back of your TV?

    @snowy18: Thank you! I put the frame between my tv and bracket. Works perfect like that. On the 3th picture you can see how it works :)

    @willfunhh @termeric I used APA102 stripes, works great and not too expensive. In time I used an rpi2b it was connected on the same power supply. Now when i'm using an rpi3 (with kodi) and still on the same power supply 20 amp. 20 amp is not enough for this setup so i'm upgrading to 30 amps

    So the frame is only connected at the top? Isn't that a bit too shaky? Or am I getting it wrong?

    Yes, my tv bracket has 2 points and I can slide my frame between the tv and the 2 points. I recently bought another bracket for my tv, will try to upload some photos next week :)
