    Thanks for that guys. It seems to work just great. I just need to try to calibrate the lights so they output the correct colours.

    I'm also having a couple of problems with my TV which my I can't finish the project properly. The first one I bought had a really bad backlight bleed. They exchanged it, but the replacement has a stuck pixel right in the middle of the screen... ARRRRGH! Now I have to wait until I'm back from holiday for them to pick up the TV and replace it!

    The price is pretty much the same as then.
    However i bought 3 leds strings from 3 different sellers. My first purchase was from a chinese reseller and these never arrived. I then bought from a german reseller, however they sent me leds with another chip, they claimed it was ws2801, but it wasnt. So after all that and me having everything ready to complete my build apart from the leds, i became impatient and just bought from the next guy who was selling and shipping from germany and where i could be pretty sure it were the right chips ;). Thats why i paid so much.
