    Hello,

    First of all, I'm a beginner with Hyperion, so I might have missed something obvious, but I'm really struggling to find a solution here...

    I'm running Hyperion on a RPi 4 on LibreElec. I have 234 Adalight Leds as such: 78 on top, 45 on left/right sides, 66 on the bottom part. I have the Bottom-Right, Right and Top LEDs working, but the Left and Bottom-Left leds are always White (appear blue-ish on the attached pictures).

    I have tried setting colors using HyperCon & Hyperion and clear colors, they still are white. They also stay white while displaying videos using Kodi whereas the others are working fine with the input video. Same with the Hyperion/booting effects.

    I have tried changing the Top-Left connector (provided with the LEDs) and even solder this corner myself, but same result...

    I'm running out of ideas, maybe you guys have any clue of what's going on?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hey,

    did you also edit your number of LEDS in the adalight.ino?

    Hi there, Thanks for the quick reply !

    I guess no as I never faced this file, where can I find it on LibreElec on RPI 4 ?

    nowhere it is the Sketch/firmware used on the arduino

    I am using a Raspberry PI4, I don't have an arduino :/

    I'm using HyperCon to setup Hyperion

    "device" :
    {
    "name" : "ValConfig",
    "type" : "adalight",
    "output" : "/dev/ttyUSB0",
    "rate" : 115200,
    "delayAfterConnect" : 0,
    "colorOrder" : "rbg"
    },

    but you have set up a arduino/adalight
    how are your leds connected?

    and you use the old hyperion(classic) which is disconntinued...

    please have a look here
    https://github.com/hyperion-project/hyperion.ng

    I setup adalight because the LEDs I bought said I should use Adalight on hyperion

    I'll check the new one, didn"t know I was using an old one, I installed it using the addon on libreelec

    Thanks again for your help, I'll update you asap

    And to answer you question, my LEDs are connected via USB to the Raspberry PI 4

    ok the "box" you have should be a arduino with adalight sketch,

    did you cut the led strip? or is it the whole strip you get? are the leds in correct direction? they work only in one direction, cause they have a data in and data out pin

    Oh ok, I didn't think this was an Arduino ^^'
    I did cut on the corners and used the given cables to connect the different parts and yes I followed the arrow on the leds so they are all clockwise !

    You can see how it is on the attached picture

    Ok I have set everything up, but the interface is quite different, how can I upload it ? Now do I have to do it manually via scp ? I can't find the ssh connection to the PI

    I guess I have to install it on the PI and use the web interface running on the PI to configure ? If so, is there a way ton install on LibreElec ? Or do I have to go back to Raspbian ?

    Thanks, I've installed it, started the daemon, but I can't access `PI_IP_ADDRESS`:8090 from my mac, did I miss something ?

    EDIT: I can't access it on the RPI either using `localhost:8090`

    Should I still use the `systemctl start/restart/stop hyperion.service` command ? Or is it a new one ?


    EDIT 2: Is hyperion still installed on the same path (./storage/.kodi/addons/service.hyperion) ? As I removed this path prior installing as your link explained
