    So tempting to jump in on one of these setups, they look cool as from YouTube videos I've seen

      1. Amazon US is clearly stated in the title and body.
      2. You must be new to the world of…. travel adaptors.

        Use some pliers and rotate the USA plugs inwards a little 😂

    I had a Philips Plasma TV years ago that had two massive Ambilight strips on both sides. It was pretty cool when watching a movie with the light dimmed.

    Really want one of these but just can’t do it whilst it’s only hdmi 2.0. Need hdmi 2.1 so supports series x and ps5 fully. Which are 2 of the main devices I’d be using with it. Keep hoping they’ll update the box but no announcement so far.

      You are not going to get 4K @120hz out of a Series X or PS5 at [email protected] is rare enough.

      Edit: Native 4k, in a game. In menu doesn't count

      •  

        Some games have the FPS boost option.

      •  

        There are lots of other benefits to HDMI 2.1. Eg VRR and LFC. Both of which make a massive difference on consoles. And we are already getting some checkerboard rendered 4k/120 games and in the case of some smaller titles, actual 4K/120 like Ori. But no something like CP2077 isn’t going to run at 4k/120 on them and no one said it would.

      What you do is get a PC with Prismatik and a DIY Ambilight setup on your PC (Total DIY cost $40ish). THEN, you start in-home streaming your Xbox to your PC, which will capture the Xbox screen and output the lighting to the Arduino.

      Switch your TV from the PC input back to the Xbox, and you're set - Native Xbox input with backlighting for cheap!! This is how I use my Xbox on my monitor and works fantastic.

      •  

        So I need to go buy a PC though haha. Nice suggestion for those that have a pc already though. Cheers.

          It doesn't have to be a good PC - any laptop from the last 10 years should be perfectly fine. It just has to run the Xbox Console Companion app (therefore Win10) but the resolution setting could be set to Low if you want; as long as the PC has a streaming output that Prismatik can capture.

          Of course, Having the forked version that directly collects a video stream from NVENC on an Nvidia GPU is generally less latency & less CPU, but it's certainly not mandatory to use.

        What you do is get a Pi with Hyperion. No PC or Arduino required.

        •  

          Yeah, but then you also need a hdmi splitter, a hdmi to composite converter, and a composite capture card that works with Linux. At this point you've spent a rather significant portion of the OP's listing.

          Oh, and also figure out how to install and configure a Pi, which itself is an achievement…

          •  

            @Switchblade88: Significant portion? Not even close. And you don't need a spare laptop (which you're assuming everyone will have lying around), and the whole solution fits on the back of your monitor or TV or in a jiffy box. Also, if you add in an hdmi switch you can connect a whole bunch of sources to it and not rely on streaming, or use the second output from a receiver if you're using that. I'd take this solution over Prismatik any day.

            And seriously, installing and configuring a Pi is dead easy and there are a million guides on the net.

            •  

              @Astronaut Joe: Can you find me a HDMI 2.1 compatible splitter? That's a big issue with solving the original quandary I was replying to, and can't say I've seen any available.

              While you're at it, I'd love to see how cheap you could build a Hyperion setup. Got links to parts? I've not seen any Pi starter bundles under $100 which is a big chunk of the total cost

    I just received mine from the US. It uses the same connection as the Hue Play bars use. So if you pick up a double play pack, there will be a third slot for the box. This is what I did.

    •  

      How does it look with the play bars? I'm considering picking one up but not sure if really needs the strip lights to look good.

    Can't wait for Anko to rip this off for $30 that works some of the time.

    Does this works with Netflix (i.e DRM content) on Nvidia shield?

      Yes, very well.

      Hi mate, thanks for sharing the link, I just ordered the 75" gradient light and the sync box for approx $616 delivered. Fingers crossed it arrives ok :D

      •  

        Hey mate, just wanted to ask if it all worked out okay? I'm also planning on doing the same!

        Was there any issues with the product and how long did shipping take approx? thanks :D

        •  

          Mate, it was bloody amazing, it literally arrived via UPS in less than 4 days. The products are all brand new and sealed but tbh i havent mounted anything yet due to lack to time atm. Definitely recommended :)
          All thanks to the above legend sharing this info!

    Does this work with Netflix?

    •  

      It works with any HDMI signal - so if for example you're playing Netflix on your Fetch Mighty box or nVidia Shield and sending that to your TV via HDMI then yes 👍

      •  

        i was asking if it'll work off native TV app Netflix rather than playing through another hardware besides the tv.

        Most people would have the Netflix app on their chromecast / TV right?

        •  

          Won't work with the TV app - it needs an HDMI connection to function.
