Re: Ambilight using boblight and arduino

Thank you very much for your help and the test apps. I hope to find some time to dump my TV's memory and see if I can find a suitable memory location.
I'll also try to see what I get from the libSDL. The following functions sound interesting: GetFrameBufferAddress(int) and _Z14GetDisplayInfoi.

Re: Ambilight using boblight and arduino

The ladyada.net guide does indeed look like the best option for me - it mentions soldering equipment but it looks to me like the only soldering that's been done there is to attach some pinned wires onto the input end of the LEDs, is that right? Exactly, for my initial test setup I didn't solder any...

Re: Ambilight using boblight and arduino

IMO Ikea Dioder is quite expensive and like any other analog 12v RGB LED strip more difficult to connect to arduino than digitally addressable strip. In order to connect Dioder to the arduino you need to use a set of transistors or a dedicated IC (such as ULN2003). To learn more about analog LED str...

Re: Ambilight using boblight and arduino

Ok. I've gotten so far: - Ordered and received arduino UNO compatible board and 50 WS2801 RGB LED Pixels - Compiled boblightd to run on my D-Series TV - Connected my arduino with Adalight sketch to the USB port on my TV - Everything works great when using client running on my HTPC! So far I am very ...

Start SamyGO on boot

Hi, I know that you can make SamyGO start on boot by setting it as a ticker/autostart, but that always goes into SmartTV mode. Is there any other way by using scripts to start up a deamon in D-Series? In case there is no better way, can we get SamyGO to switch back to the TV/HDMI mode automatically ...

Ambilight using boblight and arduino

Hi, I am looking into adding ambient lighting to my newly-acquired Samsung UE46D6500. After doing extensive research on the internet (and being a big supporter of xbmc) I finally settled for the following solution: 1. boblight for calculating colors and sending them over to arduino over the USB. It ...
