    From hypercon, click get log. Copy paste it to a text file and upload.

    I think you just solved the problem, it seems like hyperion fails."

    EDIT:
    Seems like I had configured the external video grabber, but for testing i unplugged it.
    after removing it from the config i got another issue, everything looks fine until this:

    Yes man, it did, the farthest I have come until now, I love you.:D
    even the colorchanges with Hypercon work now, Blue and green are inverted, but thats an easy fix I guess.
    So you have the same problem?

    If your blue green are inverted. That means your strip isn't RGB. It might be RBG. Just change that in the setting and you will be good.

    I don't know much about it. See the first response here maybe? https://github.com/hyperion-project/hyperion/issues/581

    If i were you. I would just set to internal framegrabber. Play something on kodi and get that to work before going to the usb grabber.

    Yeah, thank you.
    I just followed the steps from the video I used to start with, so put on some test Images with Kodi, worked well.
    Then I activated the grabber and now it works with my PS4.
    Thank you so much.
    How can I thank you?
    Also should I set this to Solved now? I guess so right?

    You don't have to thank me, man. This is what we hobbyist's do. Definitely, mark as solved. This thread has a lot of good info. It will help a lot of people.

    Out of curiosity. What video are you following?
