I noticed that the ESP8266 opened up an unprotected accesspoint. Turns out its standard behavior is to function both as a client and an access point simultaneously. In order to avoid this behavior I had to add "WiFi.mode(WIFI_STA);" in the setup part of the sketch.

Nothing happens anymore on this project?

Unfortunately not. I finished my ambilight cutting some corners due to problems with arbitrary number-of-led-combinations. I modified the sketch a little bit aswell and documented my changes here.
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.

I just googled if there were any new diy ambilight solutions for hacked samsung tvs and found this blog post https://medium.com/@adis.durakovic/how- ... 7d009b61ee by adonis (op). There's nothing new in there for people, who read this thread. I just thought I'd leave this here for completeness' sake.
