    so today my new grabber came, and the great news is that the Pi can see it now, and it's fully working.. well sort of. It says that Hyperion is active, i sent the config file with hyperion.jar and no change. so i need help into finding out what i'm doing wrong.

    Hyperion Status

    Usb Status

    Hyperion Config file

    the arduino is set for data pin 10 and baud rat 500000
    any advice thanks

    I have found that restarting the Hyperion service, the Led's will do a yellow spiral and then turn off.

    You sure it spirals? and not blink ? the Arduino sketch should have a short blink effect with a warm white light upon powering the Arduino and led's.

    Also in your Hyperion config you have no booteffect.

    Try this:
    In the config replace:
    Code:
    // NO BOOTEFFECT CONFIG
    With:
    Code:
        // BOOTEFFECT CONFIG
        "bootsequence" :
        {
            "color" : [0,0,0],
            "effect" : "Rainbow swirl fast",
            "duration_ms" : 9100,
            "priority" : 700
        },
    Then upon boot up of Hyperion is the boot effect seen?

    You are using the sketch form here, Yes?:
    https://github.com/hyperion-project/hyperion.ng/tree/master/assets/firmware/arduino/adalight

    If not please do. it could help.

    Hope its of help.
