Does anybody have another good solution to get this working smoothly under FullHD? I have already tried lightpack, but it doesn't run supersmooth either. For more information on this, see the lightpack topic.

Arduino Uno
50x ws8201
Asus E35M1-I DELUXE
Windows 7
XBMC


exact the same setup and problem. lightpack causes tearing in movies and low performance in UI.
boblight causes stuttering in HD movies.
atmolight does not work correctly because I dont know how to configure the pde file and atmowin software.....

if you have any solution for this setup, please let me know. thnx.

hi, thank you. I tried this and managed to get it to work with me setup but I still have to use fullscreen window instead of true fullscreen in xbmc and thus I got tearing during playback and a lower performance during xbmc gui. Is there any fix for that?

any atmowin xbmc plugin or setting to fix this tearing. It seems that aero turned off causes this tearing.

Hello there,

first of all: Thank you for your script, it brought me way nearer to a possible Ambilight solution, as most other scripts are based on the WS2801 IC, but I'm fighting around here with a 50 LED String LPD6803 IC.

My setup:
- Arduino Duemilanove
- Mac OS X (boblightd built from the source (without portaudio, opengl, x11, prefix=/usr)
- 50 RGB LED Strip with LPD6803 IC
- PIN 11 is Data, PIN 13 clk (as also defined in the fastSPI lib), 5V 3A current connected, GND as well

(*.INO, boblightd debug dump & my boblight.config can be found at the end of the topic)

So INO compiles, boblightd connects to Arduino, but I have 3-5 LED's flickering wildly (LED21,22,24,25). When I start XBMC with boblight addon the "rainbow" when finding the daemon is in false colors. The LED's are updated when playing a movie, but again flikering (half of them) and false colors.
Do you have any suggestions ? I came so close and my gf is slowly starting rage mode as I'm spending so much time with the Ambilight Solution ;)

Thank you in advance,
Christian

Re: Adalight support in Boblight via Atmolight

I've got Adalight working with boblight under Windows 7!

I just thought I would mention it here since there were several people trying to get this working.

When you try to use the latest windows version of boblight from the official site, you come to the conclusion that it doesn't work with the XBMC boblight plugin. Rather annoying. So I had to use an older version of boblight.

Since this week I have a new setup (switched to intel) and I have the following working:

Adalight (WS2801 + Arduino UNO)
boblight 1.3
XBMC
XBMC boblight plugin (1.0.3 I believe, the latest at the moment)

It's running very smooth, no impact on video whatsoever, absolutely loving it. Here's what I used:

1. I uploaded this slightly modified LEDstream.pde, earlier posted here to my UNO.
2. Then downloaded this boblight version for windows, no idea who compiled this, but whatever.
3. Here is my boblight.conf file, I created it with this calculator (GREAT TOOL!), you might need to change your com port number:
Code: Select all
[global]
interface   127.0.0.1
port      19333

[device]
name      ambilight
output      /dev/com3
channels        150
type            atmo
interval        10000
prefix          FF
rate            115200

[color]

adjust      1
blacklevel      0

[color]
name      blue
rgb      0000FF
gamma      1
adjust      0.6
blacklevel      0

[light]
name            50
color           red     ambilight 148
color           green   ambilight 149
color           blue    ambilight 150
hscan           38.91 44.46
vscan           90.91 100

...
...


4. Since this older version of boblight doesn't seem to be able to reach the com-port by itself, it needs a little help. (in my case) So you either need to start Arduino and do a "Serial Status" check, or you need to run the newer version of boblight first to 'activate' the com port. I really don't know why but here is how I solved it:
5. I wrote a batch file that looks like this:
Code: Select all
start "boblightd" /MIN C:\boblightd\launchfirst_boblight-1.3-beta1\boblightd.exe -c C:\boblightd\launchfirst_boblight-1.3-beta1\boblight.conf -f

TIMEOUT /T 1

taskkill /im boblightd.exe

start "boblightd" /MIN C:\boblightd\boblightd.exe -c c:\boblightd\boblight.conf -f




ps1. This German website (via Google translate) has some interesting information.
ps. the files from this site don't really work for me... Seems to be a different version of boblight.

Did all this GsJosh, and for once, XBMC connects to boblight. That's the good news. The bad news is, nothing is happening inside xbmc. The lights do their test pattern after I run the batch file, but that's it. All the connections are made in the batch file window, everything says hello etc.

I've got the com# correctly changed for my setup. What could be the problem here? I've tried everything.

Only Windows users.
The best for Windows.

Did all this GsJosh, and for once, XBMC connects to boblight. That's the good news. The bad news is, nothing is happening inside xbmc. The lights do their test pattern after I run the batch file, but that's it. All the connections are made in the batch file window, everything says hello etc.

I've got the com# correctly changed for my setup. What could be the problem here? I've tried everything.

I'm sorry for the late reply but I recently got the exact same problem as you're having. I updated to a newer version of XBMC and suddenly the lights weren't coming on anymore. I've asked some people on the XBMC forum to help me but I have little hope... Did you solve the problem? Perhaps we should have another look at Lightpack since they have improved the software recently.

Hi guys,
I bought 60led/meter ws2811 strips (only one data wire), thinking that bigger is better (silly me).
To get it working on a 64" tv I need to use 272 LEDs *87 horizontal and 49 vertical.

I also purchased a Teensy 3 in hope its better specs will be able to carry my ambilight system.
http://www.pjrc.com/teensy/index.html

Now, Is there an actual way I can try and test this baby of mine? No code I can find works for so many led lights.

I'd be very grateful to get this working properly. Should I focus on FastSPI2 release code which has been optimised or stick with FastSPI?

How do you work out settings for boblight prefix for 272 LED setup. I don't know much but am willing to learn. Please help me get this working and I'll upload as many pics as you want :)

Regards,
Milo

I have a 3 wires LED RGB Strip 60 led 1 meter long with a SW2812 chip.

An Arduino Uno R3

I run Windows 7 Professional 32 bits.

Do you have a web site address that I can download a boblight or adafruit that will work with that?
