    Hi Folks,

    I'm James and I'm brand new here a total NOOOB!!!!!!, Over the last couple of weeks I've been reading about Hyperion and the DIY mood lighting. I've started to collect parts to run with my screen grabber and RPI 3, I ordered a WS2812B strip light but was sent a WS2813 with four wires (+ DI CI -).

    My Problem comes with the actual option to select in 'TYPE' I've tried the suggested APA102 , SPI WS2801 etc but I cant seem to get the damn thing to work at the moment I have a line of red lights.

    My wires are going to the PI3 on the following pins

    DI - MOSI PIN 19 (GPIO 12)
    BI - SCLK PIN 23 (GPIO 14) -- not sure about this one ??
    Negative - PIN 6 (GROUND)

    Any help will be gratefully received.
