Correct me if I am wrong, but I could always add Hyperion to a HTPC+USB direct driven solution afterwards right?Haven't tried that setup yet however so can't confirm if that will work but that one does support deep color on both outputs so you don't lose any additional color info going towards TV
Leds wise if you build it yourself it will cost less and have a lot more leds ( > 200) for better effect and upgrade-ability.
And frankly if the Hyperion downsamples the 4K at 1080p then it will still be overkill, resolution wise even 480p is more than enough for a 1024 LED zones.
Or are you saying with that HDMI 4K splitter that a 4K signal will pass-through, but the light effect will only work when a 1080p signal is detected?
Just have not seen anybody post that they run a 4K HTPC with AmbiLight, and I do not want to waste money to find out afterwards it is never going to work.
DIY would not be a problem, but due to a constant lack of time, are there any 200+ LED/zone ready made solutions available to purchase?
