    Hi there

    I am looking at using Hyperion to build my own DIY Ambi light, however i only have one HDMI feed which is my PS4 everything else is though build in apps on my smart TV, YouTube, Netflix Amazon Prime. Plex, TV apps and normal terrestrial Tv etc.

    My query has 2 parts or questions if you like.

    1) Is there a Webos/andriod app that i can install on my tv that negates the need for video capture card bit like the ambilight app.

    2) Like Ambilight.tv which uses a camera to scan you tv/monitor screen to that then links to the led strip, does Hyperion support USB camera as a source etc.

    Regarding 1: There is (as far as I know) an app for this, but it do not work with encrypted content (netflix, prime...) so it's not that useful ;)

    Regarding 2: Yes, this is possible.

    I have looked into rooting my LG 55" B6V OLED running WebOS but didn't get far and too afraid to brick my TV. But there are possibilities, and that might open up ways to capture the screen of the TV directly. See this post.
