    I want to make an ambilight using hyperion with the HDMI splitter / grabber etc

    I already have a bunch of x86 32 bit atom based thin clients, I want to use one of these rather than buying a pi. What linux distro should I use and how do I install hyperion?

    I plan on getting 5m of WS2811B LED, using an arduino nano (not sure what sketch I need for this yet), and these other things:

    Ubuntu and you' may have to build from source.

    It should work fine... if not I can probably spin up a 32 bit vm to troubleshoot
