RPi + LibreELEC Is 4K HDR ambilight possible?

    Hey guys,

    I am about to order all the necessary stuff to build myself an ambilight again after having owned one some time ago for my old 1080p TV. Despite reading lots of threads, there is one thing I am not completely sure about yet (and several threads seem to point in opposite directions). Is it possible to have an ambilight while also using a mix of 4k HDR and SDR content without buying the stupidly expensive HDfury? If yes, which solution is the best for this?

    Thanks in advance for any clear information! :)

    Trying to do the same too:

    I currently have this USB Grabber, which claims to accept a 4K input, however in practice I’ve had to downgrade my SkyTV output to 1080p to the grabber for the Rpi3 to pick it up. This renders the Ambilight mostly pointless as we have a 4k TV.

    so need a 4k signal in to the grabber, and possibly the Rpi.

    HDR seems to be really complicated. I might just use the newly announced hue light strip since I don't want to give up HDR colors...
