    I'm having an issue with my openelec hyperion setup. It does everything it should exept the leds won't light up after the boot sequence. I use a Hauppauge usb live 2 grabber wich works cause I can make screenshots so I assume that part of the chain is working. At the boot the leds light up and after a few seconds there is a swirl so the arduino connected to the pi 1 is working also (done the setup via this link: https://hyperion-project.org/threads/diy-amblight-project-guide-hyperion-ws2801-ws2812b-apa102.8/ )

    But after the boot sequence the leds stay dark. I changed the width an height in the v4l2 section of the hyperion.config.json in -64 but that still doesnt work.

    I dont use a hdmi splitter, I use the scart of my set top box wich works cause i can make good screenshots.

    Am I missing something? Thanks in advance !

    This is a screenshot from the Hauppauge usb live 2 grabber with this command:

    I have small black borders though, is this crucial for the leds to lit up?

    The leds are working at the boot sequence (first three colors and then the swirl) but after that they stay dark so they work good. The arduino rx led flashes so I suppose there is data traffic.

    Problem solved! I checked a dmesg command log file and saw some errors in the Hauppaage driver USB configuration. I ordered an Easycap grabber which came today, hooked it up and worked right out the box! Thanks for your support !
