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 the various LibreELEC projects.

If you want hardware that will work on any LibreELEC project, this is the best choice.

This project is called an “Adalight” it works by sending serial data to a micro controller (Arduino) which controls the LED's

======Hardware======

  • Arduino (Uno, nano, etc)
  • WS2801 LED strand
  • 5V power supply
  • Wire/Jumpers
  • Breadboard/Protoboard (optional)
  • Soldering iron (optional)

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

======Hypercon======

Using Hypercon you will want to select the following options

Note that you might have to change your output device.

The Raspberry Pi can drive an SPI output directly and hyperion can output to and spidev

======Hardware======

  • Raspberry Pi
  • WS2801 LED strand
  • 5V power supply
  • Wire/Jumpers

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

======Software======

You will have 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

======Hypercon======

Using Hypercon you will want to select the following options

This works only till FullHD, above you need an Adruino (Uno, nano, etc) as the driver is problematic at higher resolutions.

======Hardware======

  • Odroid C2
  • WS2801 LED strand
  • 5V power supply
  • Wire/Jumpers

You can find the pinout here

Development Board

Production Board

For the production Odroid C2 you will need to connect the following pins

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

For the development Odroid C2 you will need to connect the following pins

16 MOSI -> Data
32 SCLK -> Clock
34 GND  -> Ground

======Hypercon======

Using Hypercon you will want to select the following options
