    AtmoWin - improvement discussion

    As far as i can remember, there is a bug in AtmoWin where you could not use any com port bigger than 9. So try changing the com port used to something lower. I had the same problem some time ago.

    [DIY] AtmoOrb - A Hue like mood lamp based on Arduino, ESP8266 wifi module and WS2812B rgb leds

    Great, dont know, havnt tried any SPI chipsets yet. Havnt done anthing with esp or leds in the last month in general. Last i checked hardware spi wasnt implemented into fastled, so you would need to use software spi, and then it shouldnt matter what pin.

    Du musst schon sicher stellen das die baudraten überall richtig gesetzt sind. Im esp (at Befehle) als auch beim arduino (beide serials, einen für USB, einen für esp). Gesendet von meinem One mit Tapatalk

    Da DHCP nicht disabled ist, ist deine IP nicht 192.168.0.44 sondern eine von deinem Router vegebene. Entweder in AtmoLight auf UDP Broadcast umstellen oder disable dhcp auf 1 setzten.

    [DIY] AtmoOrb - A Hue like mood lamp based on Arduino, ESP8266 wifi module and WS2812B rgb leds

    Vorweg, die Methode die ich im ersten Post beschrieben habe ich eher veraltet. Inzwischen ist mit einem ESP8266 kein Arduino mehr nötig. Jedoch habe ich hierfür noch kein neues Tutorial geschrieben und es mag gut sein das ich auch nie eines dafür schreiben werden. Wer aber ein wenig Erfahrung...

    [DIY] Ambilight Project – WS2812B LEDstrip + Arduino Leonardo

    Looks neat, here some things to keep in mind though. You want your leds to start as far out as possible. Using this ChromaTab you would either loose like 3 leds at the start, or the board would stick out behind your tv. So to get the best result you still would need to use sime wires to connect...

    [solved] Origen/Phillips (RC197) remote

    Hey, i have the same receiver and remote. So i might be able to shed some light ;). Firstly, some of the buttons (numbers, ok, arrows and so on) get interpretaded by windows itself and then are simulated as keyboard presses. So if you press ok, then mp actually sees that the enter key on your...

    AtmoLight 2.1.0.0 for MediaPortal2 [2015-01-21]

    AtmoLight for MP2 does not have any forms, or any GUI for that matter. The only thing it has is the stuff in the settings section of MP2. But thats all MP2 stuff. So im a bit confused as to what you could have seen :/.

    AtmoLight 2.1.0.0 for MediaPortal2 [2015-01-21]

    Thanks, looks like i need to compile AtmoLight against the newest MP2 version to update some lib references. The crash seems to come from AtmoLight trying to use a handler before it subscribed to it. Also AtmoWin seems to be on by default. Will fix/change all these issues later today :).

    [DIY] AtmoOrb - A Hue like mood lamp based on Particle Photon with NeoPixel - *Tutorial added*

    The minimum input voltage is not the problem. But at what level your led chip thinks that a voltage is high. WS2812B datasheet says: Input voltage level VIH DIN,SET 0.7VDD —— —— V VIL DIN,SET —— —— 0.3 VDD V So everything from 0.7*Vdd is considered high (1). And everything below 0.3*Vdd is...

    IMDb+ issues with missing summary/rating/etc.

    Just fyi. The last couple of movies i imported had a rating of 0 (from imdb). I then saw the discussion here in the forum and updated IMDb+. After first install it also did an automatic update. However refreshing the movies did not help. So i dug a bit. Moving Pictures told me its using 4.9.52...

    AtmoLight - 1.18.6.0 [2016-09-21]

    Thanks for reporting. Looks like AtmoLight has a problem communicating with Hyperion sometimes. And in some cases failes to reconnect. Crash seems to come from a bug where an object is wrongly removed or not properly checked. Will have a look at it a bit later :). @Rick164 look at...

    How to calibrate your LED colors

    You can use AtmoCal to display white, red, green and blue while you calibrate. However hyperion of course can't grab your screen to check other colors. You could use AtmoCal to display a random color and then set that color with the hyperion remote app to see how good the calibration is.

    How to calibrate your LED colors

    So, I have spent a lot of time calibrating my Amibilight systems to get the perfect colors out of it. I have done it with my old WS2801 system, and now again with my APA102 system. Lots of people always ask how to properly do this, so I wanted to give a short overview on what I do. Im going to...

    Guys... I doubt the soldering iron is getting too hot. And in general its better to have a too hot iron than a too cold one, as with the cold one you will need to use it near the electronics for longer. Dont just buy new stuff all the time, but rather learn to use the stuff you have. There are...

    [DIY] AtmoOrb - A Hue like mood lamp based on Particle Photon with NeoPixel - *Tutorial added*

    Its not logging each individual color change, but its logging when an orb connects to AtmoLight, after that you can assume that colors are being send if your other leds are showing something aswell.

    [DIY] AtmoOrb - A Hue like mood lamp based on Particle Photon with NeoPixel - *Tutorial added*

    Im guessing the confussion is about whether to use physical pin 6 or labeled pin 6 (D6). Guesswork here, but its probably D6 and not physical pin 6. There is no need for a DAC, and even though that pin will probably be able to do the same digtial tasks you normaly wont use it. If anybody speeks...

    New Ambient Lighting system - no knowledge

    In most cases the problem is not the hardware. Why do you think the psu is faulty? Have you meassured voltages? What is the current problem? Best if you attach pictures of what the leds are showing and what is expected.

    [DIY] Amblight project/guide - Hyperion - WS2801/ WS2812B / APA102

    No you don't need to step up the voltage if you use a 5v arduino. Note that the one u linked is not genuine, and therefore might have a slower USB serial connection. Which might make problems with a lot of leds. You can use a pi directly by using ws2801, apa102 or the likes. However ws2812b...

    New Ambient Lighting system - no knowledge

    Praise your lord! :sneaky: Well, as i mentioned the datasheet is actually wrong. It states that its expecting a 32bit frame, where every bit is high. However, in reallity you need "Number of leds" / 2 bits for the end frame. For 222 that would of course be 111 bits. For a 1 meter strip however...

    New Ambient Lighting system - no knowledge

    To make sure we mean the same thing. Now you have a problem with led 222, if you set hyperion to only use lets say 200, then all the sudden the problem appears at led 200, instead of 222? If so, it could be that hyperion does not have APA102 implemented properly. It needs an end frame to clock...

    [DIY] Amblight project/guide - Hyperion - WS2801/ WS2812B / APA102

    There is no real answer to this. I like 90°, however i have seen others use 0°/180°. Afaik @Rick164 uses something in the middle like 45°. 90° gives you a more accurate representation of the screens content on the wall, while 45° will illuminate a bigger area. Here ia an example of 0°/180°...

    New Ambient Lighting system - no knowledge

    Ît'll work, but you will have quite a bit of voltage drop. Lets say you power a 1m strip with it and you have 60leds. Putting 3.6A through it would result in ja 7% voltage drop to 4.635V. Not major, but not good either. I just bought 0.75mm² for my system. Yes.
