    Hello, I have a strip of leds WS2811 connected to the raspberry pi 3b +. In the first case I connect two cables to the power supply and then connect the other three cables to the gnd pin, the clk pin and the data pin. Active spi in the file config.txt and I put the core_freq = 250. I do the installation step by step correctly and in no time it gives error, finally with hypercon I export the file hypercon.config.json and I put it in /etc/hyperion.The thing is that it starts correctly (does not give error), but it does not makes the rainbow effect. If I try to change the color sudece an error:
    [email protected]:~$ hyperion-remote --priority 50 --color red --duration 5000
    version : V1.03.4 (brindosch-c750c41/dc6a602-1522918225
    build time: Apr 5 2018 01:57:05
    Connected to localhost:19444
    Set color to 255 0 0

    you sure it is ws2811? cause they dont have a clock pin?

    edit: and please dont ask the same question in different threads...otherwise i lose the overview

    I've got the same problem - but I'm using a 2812b LED Strip. The ws28xx Package is installed and the Demo functions are working - but when I install Hyperion i also get the same Error (Error while reading data from host) - any ideas?
