However I don't have the skills to modify adonis' lib. Over all I'm extremely happy with the result and very thankful towards adonis for sharing his work.
I thought about the possibility to integrate the diy ambilight with my hue lighting system. (Apperently there are libraries for arduino, which simulate a hue bridge, which then can be controlled by another (real) hue bridge. That way one could set the leds' color from the hue app, when the tv is off. I haven't had the time to dig deeper into this. Also I'm not really confident I'd be able to implement something like this.
Another interesting thought concerning hue integration would be using the hue api to control hue bulbs from the arduino, in order to extend the ambilight effect to nearby lamps.
