When I saw this tutorial, I thought it would be enough with a 10A.Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who have a lab power source ...About the wires, I'm using cables like those for powering PC, so it should be good I guess.
About 6A to power 116pcs, I have 224 so I need about 12A to power them.I have a 10A power supply, and I had to set the luminence to 0,50 and the saturation gain to 0,8, in order to make it works without flickering. But the effect is not really cool with this settings.I'm thinking to buy a much better power supply like a 20A to be sure it will be strong enough. Any advice on witch one to choose ? I did it like that for each corner :
After connecting to each corner of the strip, it didn't change anything.As you said, the power supply is not strong enough for this current.How can I know how much power do I need ?
Hi, thanks for the answer.I connected the supply to the middle of the strip but it didn't change, I will connect it to every corners when I have time to work on it :)I will post a message when it's done.
Maybe it's not the baudrate in fact.When I set the LED full white it's flickering a lot and it I measure the voltage at the end of the strip I get about 2.5V. I reduce the luminence gain to 0,5 but it doesn't change the problem.Any idea ?
Thanks for this tutorial.I made it but I have a problem with the baudrate.I did it on a 55" tv, I have a total of 224 LED on it, but sometimes the strips are flickering. When I change the baudrate it's better but I don't know how to get the good value. Do you know the way to calculate the good baudrate ?Thanks
Yes I'm using adrilight for few days now and it's better than bambilight.

Thanks for your answer, it still looks good anyway :)
Nice tutorial. I made it too and I love it :DBut I noticed a bug, when the color is green the ambilight froze for few seconds, anybody else have this bug ?
