    Need som help and i'm a noob on this.

    I have read a lot of tutorials and tested with no results.

    I have LE 8.2.5 installed and wired a levelshifter to ws2812b and lowering the volt to 4.7v to led.
    i used pin 12 / gpio 18 and pin 6 ground.
    Hyperion intallation on LE went good, no errors.
    The json config file i created for PWM ws28xxi copied to storage/hyperion/config. sending the file from hyperion ssh to LE /storage/.config did not work.

    Dont no if dtparam=i2c(spi)is on or off.. if thats is the problem?

    Cant make it work!

    Which guide are you using?
    PWM and SPI are different
    I use SPI, which is pin 19 and 23. ground pin is 9
    Make sure you have everything connected before loading/sending the json file. It will not work with a partial setup

    I have a ws2812b ledstrip with one data, must conect to bcm 18, 12 or 13.
    Pwm 28xx-spi or 28xx fot rpi 1.2.3.
    My spi is on.
    Using guide 3 wire-pwm and other guides.
    Read that other having problems with newer OS like Le and OSMC
    I bought a Arduino uno today and i'm going to connect it to my pi. It's a easy way
    My ledstrip is working! With Arduino strandtest.
