    Good evening,
    Could a nice soul please unblock me?
    I installed a ws2813 LED strip on a 55 'TV, connected directly to a raspberry pi w zero.
    I installed Hyperion on the Pi, I connect to the Pi via ssh, do the configuration via hypercon and send it to the Pi, etc. (in short I followed a tutorial), click on START, I try to turn on the LEDs via this app but nothing ... nothing, I do not have the rainbow.
    Sometimes a part of the band lights up and flashes but that's it ...
    Tested with several power supplies (5A, 10A, 15A)
    GND on the pine 9
    DATA on the pine 19
    BI on the pine 23
    Where do I make a mistake?
    Thank you

    RPi1/Zero, RPi3, +Arduino
    The Zero apparently has trouble directly controlling WS281x LEDs. Use an Arduino with Adalight in between and it'll work.
