    Hi all

    I would like to put ambient lighting on my 51" tv.
    I have purchased some items and would like your opinions on these and if they are compatible.
    1) Grabber: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07B75JKFY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    1a) Grabber: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0013BXFLG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    2) Pi3: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07QP1CZLK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    3) Converter: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B075N7KYQK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    4) Splitter: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07K7347T8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    5) Switch: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07NXXKWFF/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    6) 4M APA102 Strip: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/APA102-S...var=461285954485&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

    I have a 16G SD card with LibreELEC and Hypercon installed
    Not sure on a power supply yet but have tested the lights with an Arduino Uno and all work.
    I have also tested the converter on a tv and I do get the colored lines when set to PAL

    I have 2 Grabbers as this seems to be a grey area and not sure if either of these will work.
    Any help would be much appreciated.
