    Hello,

    I don't have found the information or not completely in the forum, I'm new user.

    I will install librelec or OSMC with Kodi and use RPI4 to show 4K and HDR content and make ambilight for internal source.

    If I buy :

    Led SK6812 RGBW (5m with 60led/m)
    Power supply 5v 20 A
    Corner connector 3pin

    Should I use ambilight with the 4K and HDR content, or it's better to keep my RP3 with an USB to HDMI video capture and splitter 4K ?

    Thank you in advance for your reply

    Power supply 20a is fine
    It is better to solder the corners

    The corner connectors are very prone to failure.
