Ambilight - Hyperion

#1

Hi,

I’m using a x96 (S905X) 2G/16G box with CE 9.0.1 and I’ve been following the ‘hyperion.ng slow down’ topic on the forum for some weeks now. I’m pretty convinced that everything is working smooth now thanks to the relentless effort of the developers and testers. A big thumbs up to all of you.

As I would like to build my own ambilight installation, I’m wondering if someone can point me in the right direction. Is there an online guide to follow? I seem to find only projects where the RPI is used as mediaplayer. Can I use my X96 and which additional components do I need (Arduino, …)?

Thanks

I do use an Arduino UNO. I used this hardware guide: https://learn.adafruit.com/adalight-diy-ambient-tv-lighting/pieces
But for sure there are some more modern description somewhere. Just google “adalight ambient”

Should work. I used the same software on windows. Also the description says “adalight”. So Hyperion is supporting it. I think I will get one if a new TV will arrive in my house :sunglasses:

I use Arduino Nano + APA102 leds and all works great. I used before Arduino UNO and the connection schema tfor the Nano is exactly the same.

I use the Arduino Uno, fastLED sketch and WS2812B LEDs.
Had this setup for years across RPI2, RPI3, Odroid C1, C2 and now N2.
