Step 4: conclusions

I decided to use this approach because it's so simple, I had all of the parts already (net cash outlay – zilch) and it only took 15 minutes to install.

If I wanted to get fancy I could have made a small controller with three different color bulbs so I could change the ambient light color.

These views show a commercial HDTV with a built in ambient back light and my HDTV without and with the ambient back light in action.

Nice instructable. I have to say that I am not a real fan of ambient lighting behind the TV but lighting (maybe a strobe) behind the toilet sounds like a winner!
