    Hi !

    I managed today to get the new Hyperion alpha running on the PI on LibreElec using the 6th beta instead of 7 (wget -qO- https://git.io/JUvg7 | bash -s 2.0.0-alpha.6)

    I have set everything up using the web interface, but still the same LEDs stuck white :/

    CF: My config

    could you provide some logs?

    Sure, but I don't have much logs... CF Attached files for journalctl and logs displayed in the web interface using Debug Level logs:

    Could you recheck your layout, please?
    The log indicates that you have 222 LEDs configured, not the 236 expected.
    That would explain why the tail end of your strip is not updated...

    Hello Lord-Grey, thanks for taking the time to help !

    I checked that, and you were right, that was because I used the 'Gap' feature of the new Hyperion with a 12 LEDs gap. My bad. I removed it now, so I'm back to 236, but same result :/

    The 45 Left + 33 Bottom-Left LEDs are still not updating

    I'm beginning to think that the LEDs are broken...

    I don't have an arduino (Except the little box that's on the LEDs you told me) :/

    Is there any way I can test it using the RPI ?

    @Dliix66 Did you try to configure having all lights at top and right side (i.e. e.g. top = 118, right = 118, left = 0 and bottom = 0).
    Do the same lights stay white?

    I just relooked at the pictures you shared. As the white between top and left start exactly at the edge, I would suggest you check that area physically again.
    I does not look like a software problem.

    Hi, I just received my new LEDs and everything worked fine as soon as I installed the new ones ! So it was the previous LEDs that were broken :/

    Thanks again for the support !
