Raspberry out, welcome Odroid N2+ &CoreElec... &Ambilight ??

Post by zukoy »

Hello community !
I'm a fresh new "Odroid'er", tired of raspberry lack of HDR... ... (You may know the story !)
So, I just order my new Odroid N2+ and will install CoreElec. OK for this part.
As I also upgraded my TV to a 65", I would also like to set ambilight "DIY" with this new Odroid N2+.
Unfortunately, I'm not able to find a fresh nice recent tuto for my N2+ & ambilight :roll:
Lot of topics, some with Arduino, some without, some with ws2801 LED hardware stripes, some with WLED (Aircoookie...) ... ... ...

I'm lost ! I dont even know if it's possible to plug a ws2801 LED stripe like with raspberry/GPIO...

So please help me to find THE TUTO or any useful help !

Ideally : how to plug LED stripe to Odroid N2+ + WLED + direct use (NO arduino) should be the ideal setup, for me, if it's working this way in 4K HDR...

Thx by advance for those who will read/answer. Appreciated :P

We've not seen any direct GPIO driving LED strings for Ambilight.
Since the GPIO toggling time is not accurate on the Amlogic CPU platforms, you probably need to use a cheap($3~4) Arduino Pro micro compatible board.
