    very interesting thread.It could be less details on certain point (winscp & Co) and a bite more on other: LED strip connectivity (power supplying, joint etc) & Arduino part. Indeed I think most ppl interesting in this DIY definitely need at least some knownledge in computer science, and if they don't know how to make an SCP to a Pi (or at least look for it on Internet), this DIY isn't for them.Concerning the Arduino part, and the strip i think a bite more detail would be nice: arduino : why ? how to reuse code if no LCD for example, or without the "hack" you made ?Concerning the LED Strip an electric schematic on how you wire everything would be a great plus! when you said : "power on both side", how do you actually do ? i'm no expert in electronic but as far...see more »very interesting thread.It could be less details on certain point (winscp & Co) and a bite more on other: LED strip connectivity (power supplying, joint etc) & Arduino part.

I know you can connect the strip directly to the PI using the GPIO module of the PI. Is there a reason you chose to not use it ? I'm really interesting in your point of view since my project will be very similar to yours but instead of an HDMI switch i have my home cinema amplifier and my openelec is on another small computer. i'm planning to get a PI to receive the signal and control directly the LED strip. So if you have some interesting thought about using the Arduino i'm really interested, maybe it's "only" for your "hack" (very impressive & clever hack!) and in that case, for my project i don't need one.Again, very nice work ! :)
