Hyperion

Hyperion requires some hardware and software configuration. For the software configuration pls head over to Hypercon. This page will describe the process to add Hyperion to Generic x86_64 and Raspberry Pi hardware.

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

Follow the tutorial here https://learn.adafruit.com/adalight-diy-ambient-tv-lighting/overview.

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:

19 MOSI -> Data
23 SCLK -> Clock
25 GND -> Ground

You need to enable SPI in the config.txt file:

mount -o remount,rw /flash
nano /flash/config.txt

Add the following line to the end of the file:

dtparam=spi=on

Then reboot. In Hypercon you will need to enable:

Hypercon configuration Raspberry Pi
