Hyperion
Hyperion is an open source project that provides an ambient lighting system, compatiblie with Kodi. Hyperion requires hardware and software configuration. This page describes the process to add Hyperion to Generic x86_64 and Raspberry Pi hardware. For software configuration please head over to Hypercon.

Adalight

If you want hardware that will work on any LibreELEC device, an "Adalight" setup is the best choice. It works by sending serial data to an Arduino micro controller which controls the LEDs. You need:
  • Arduino (Uno, nano, etc)
  • WS2801 LED strand
  • 5V power supply
  • Wire/Jumpers
  • Breadboard/Protoboard (optional)
  • Soldering iron (optional)
Adalight wiring
In Hypercon you will need to enable:
Hypercon configuration Adalight

Raspberry Pi

Pi devices can drive an SPI output directly, and hyperion can output to an spidev device. You need:
  • Raspberry Pi
  • WS2801 LED strand
  • 5V power supply
  • Wire/Jumpers
Raspberry Pi wiring
You can find the pinout here https://pinout.xyz. You will need to connect the following pins:
1
19 MOSI -> Data
2
23 SCLK -> Clock
3
25 GND -> Ground
Copied!
You need to enable SPI in the config.txt file:
1
mount -o remount,rw /flash
2
nano /flash/config.txt
Copied!
Add the following line to the end of the file:
1
dtparam=spi=on
Copied!
Then reboot. In Hypercon you will need to enable:
Hypercon configuration Raspberry Pi
