    Hi,

    first of all sorry for my english.
    I buy some parts for the ambilight by Aliexpress;
    Apa 102 led strip 5 mtr
    Video Converter Box HDMI
    Wifi dongle for the raspberry pi zero
    UTV007 USB 2.0 Video Capture Grabber
    5V 10A power supply and 5v 20A power supply extra
    Usb Hub Splitter
    HDMI Splitter
    Raspberry Pi Zero
    And the sd come from my gopro and is a Samsung 32 Gb class 10 hc, and its original.

    I'm using this tutorial

    I connecting everthing the same as in the video.

    I,m download first Raspbian Jessie Lite 2016-11-25 and instal it on the same way, and work corectly.
    And i download Hyperion and instal it.
    After i copy the settings from the video (for me 220 leds) and i upload it to the pi,.my leds blinking/blinking uncontrollably in the rainbow swirl, and also if i start Hyperion with the same efect.
    The apa 102 i tested with the arduino, and the led stip working fine
    The clock and data signal wire's that i using are from the apa 102 connector are 10 cm to the pi, does not extend.
    I'm thinking maybe the Jessie Lite 2016-11-25 is not download from the raspberry site, so i download stretch.
    This image have the same effect.
    Than i buy a seccond hands Raspberry Pi B rev 2, with the same results.
    If a take a screenshot in the grabber ,than i see the freezing picture from my tuner, what working.
    Than i google for my problem, and find that the pi give a (to) low voltage (3.3V) and there talking about a logic level converter.
    Some people talking about a SN74AHCT125N ic in this post.
    Helping one of this solution, and why have some people problems with no this extra's.
    And what is the best solution for solve my problem?

    Today i buy the logic level converter.

    [​IMG]

    The level converter i connect to the apa 102 clock and data pins and the pi pins;
    2 grounds from the logic converter, to the pi pin 6 and 14
    LV from the logic converter, to the pi pin 1 (3.3V)
    HV from the logic converter, to the pi pin 2 (5V)
    LV1 from the logic converter, to the pi pin 23 (gpio 11)
    LV2 from the logic converter, to the pi pin 19 (gpio 10)
    HV1 from the logic converter, to the apa 102 clock connection
    HV2 from the logic converter, to the apa 102 data connection
    The 5 volt from the power supply i connecting to the apa 102 + and -
    The pi get power from a original Samsung mobiel micro usb charger.

    If i starting with hyperion, the effect is the same, blinking/flickering uncontrollably leds.
    What i do/go wrong?

    It is said "a picture is worth a thousand words"

    Have any pictures of the wiring to and from the Rpi, level shifter and leds?

    Thanx for the reply, i take for sure also a level converter ic from the shop yesterday.
    I have (the same) level converter ic i see now, the number is SN74AHCT125N.
    You have a schematic for how i can connect it?

    Something like:
    "name" : "mycooltv",
    "type" : "apa102",
    "output" : "/dev/spidev0.0",
    "rate" : 1000000,

    The rest you well have to fill in.

    It works (almost)
    The spark and the SN74AHCT125N not works (for me).
    After i connect the pi and the apa 102 and i connecting it to ONE powersuply (20A) it not blinking/flickering uncontrollably anymore!
    But now i have another problem.
    The collors not working properly, the bleu and red are wrong, the green and red pink are good.
    If i changing the colors on the collorpicker (collorwheel), than it reacts immediately, but if i changing the "RGB byte Order" in the hardware tab to another transposed, nothing change on my apa 102?
    If i change it i have to save and upload? (i try this and this working also not)
    How i change this?

    This leads me to believe that (ALL) ground wires where not connected together when using two power supply's.

    I think i do right, maybe i forget a ground wire, but how i change the blue end red coller preciselyi n the proggram?
    If i changed the RGB, you see it right away?
    Or i have to save it and upload by the setting "create hyperion configuration" and upload it to the pi and reboot it?

    The rgb colors are now ok, but i have now 2 issues more;
    The 2 vertical led strips have not the same brightness if you compare it with the horizontal led strips (the ledstrip angle and the distance to wall are the same).
    This problem is only when i use the video grabber, not with the hyperion windows remote app (steady collors and effects)
    The second problem is that some led's respond a little bit nervous if the brightness are sometimes not to mutch, you see problem very clear when i freeze the image.
    Do you have any idea

    This is my setup with NO logic level converter.
    The APA 102 get 5V power in the beginning, and 5V power on the end.
    The clock and data signal are connected only to arrow "in" on the APA 102
    The problem from the led's that responding a little bit nervous, i make a video and posting later (if it's dark)

    My second setup is between the APA 102 and the raspberry pi i connect a sparkfun logic level converter- Bi-Directional
    I connect like thia picture:
    https://postimg.org/image/hky8fejef/
    [​IMG]
    And solder it.

    I connect the spark grounds with pin 9 and pin 25 on the Pi.
    The 3.3 V from the spark to pin 1 on the Pi.
    The 5V from the spark to pin 4 on the Pi.
    The clock and data signals are connecting to the spark, apa, and the spark.

    (Sorry on this pictures i make a mistake with the ground, i see this later and make the good connection, than i try it again with no results.)
    My third setup is with the SN74AHCT125N ic
    And connect it on a breadboard like this tutorial.

    I try to connect it on 2 ways

    1; the 5V power and ground i take it from the Pi to SN74AHCT125N.
    https://postimg.org/image/5a9v8o9s7/
    [​IMG]image posting
    The result of this; no light

    2; I give the Pi a separate power sulply from a micro usb Samsung Adapter 2A
    The SN74AHCT125N ic get power from the power suply and the ground i connect also to the Pi

    In this video you see the leds on al sides with low light blinking/flickering uncontrollably, with a freezing image (the flickering from the plasma, have nothing to do with this

    In this video, i set the led light with the webapp, so low as possible, than jou see no led's blinking/flickering uncontrollably.
    What make the problem here?
    I see this problem not in other video's from hyperion users
