Step 1: Arduino Uno
Here is a Arduino Uno, on the right.
Any Arduino will do. Uno, Mega ,ect.
You will also need a USB A to USB B data transfer cable, to upload your sketch.
Step 2: Led on Back Tv
I added led strip to back edge of tv with double sided tape.
The tricolor LED strip I purchased from Radio Shack.
Step 3: You Also Need 12 Watt Power Supply
Power supply must be close to 1 amp or higher if you want to add more strips.
I just had one lying around.
Step 4: Program Arduino
Program Arduino using IDE sketch program that came with your Arduino.
Test sketch can be downloaded from shack.net/LED0339
I added some effects to my sketch.
Step 5: Finished
