  • Arduino Controlled Positional RGB LED Christmas Tree

    this is exaclty what im looking for very very nice, i was looking for a few days to find a good turorial for a xmas tree... im a total beginner i want to do this,this is the only turorial i could find, im really happy i found this :Dafter i saw it i just ordered all the stuff from ebay :D but instead of a arduino i took a wemos d1 mini... but im still confused about the led wiring... it says in most turorials a led should be run with a resistor(transistor?) in front of it, dont u also use one or is this not nececarry? also how do you change the programms/patterns on the tree when the light are running? i was wondering if u maybe installed a IR sensor to use a remote? im going to use a 5v 5a powersupply and 100x ws2811 leds... is the powersuply enough amps for the LEDs? also is ok if i...

  • Ambilight System for Every Input Connected to Your TV. WS2812B Arduino UNO Raspberry Pi

    hey very nice tutorial... i would like to do this tut... but why are you using a arduinio instead of the pi to controll the led? also i have one question about the switcher?do the switcher changes the sources automatically? for example: if u turn on ps4 the switcher switches the hdmi input automatically to ps4 and also the ambilight switches automatically to ps4? also could you explain the 5v board u created a little bit more? what is it for exactly?

  • Ambilight without Arduino for non addressable RGB leds

    hey i im a real noob and i love your tutorial, but im new with this stuff, so its a little bit complicated for me, i got a led strip like on your first picture...mine are conrtrolled over a little box with a IR controll and a extern power device....here are a picture:my question ishow can i manage to connect the dvi from the gpu too it?where?can i just solder the red,blue or green and the black from dvi to the machting colors?or do i need a fotogene inbetween? if its not possible i will use these leds for your projects...but i would be cool because it has external powersupply and is already plug and play..thanks

    thx im not sure ... i got the same stripes like in the main picture they have 4 pins.. how can i find out if they are anode or cathode?i made a better picture of the chip and the leds..i found this here: the guy used the board and the power of the original controller..i would like to combine your method with the the one from the link...would it be possible like thispc dvi signal ----> breadboard with Optocoupler and resistor --->board with power supply (old controller) ----> LED out

    sorry i couldnt post the link so here are some pictures of the other tutorial...

    really great project, but i would like to add some resistors how can i add them this is one of my first projects so im total noob with this kind of stuff
