doglover 23/30 LEDs illuminating does support your theory that those LEDs are accepting 4 bytes instead of 3 - perhaps you received SK6812RGBW in error? SK6812 are rgb and SK6812RGBW are rgbw. SK6812 Datasheet SK6812RGBW Datasheet
Hello, The details of the pinout and power connector are attached. Cheers Rakesh
Are these pinouts also valid for the DreamScreen 4K? What are the tech specs on the LED1 & LED2 ports? How much power can I source per port? I understood it's 150 leds per port, but max 250 useable? (what is the reason behind this?) Is this a power requirement or an addressing requirement?
At the moment I have 178 WS2812 LEDs around my TV, as I understand it I'll have to divide this strip in two? Power will need to be supplied seperately / spliced in as at full brightness white that'll consume over 10A. What is the recommended practice here? - use a beefier power brick connected to the DS, and power the LED strips from the LED1 & LED2 port - use the supplied power brick to power the DS & another to power the LED strips (with common ground I presume) - use a beefier power brick to power the DS and the LED strips seperately - i.e. only the data line is used from DS to LED strips (only common ground shoud suffice I presume)
I installed dreemscreentv hd with the LEDs WS2812b, 60 per meter on three sides of the TV, reproduces all colors except white on one of the sides, which instead of white reproduces orange. I have tried with saturation settings and I do not get that when the TV is blank that side plays white. the color of the wall is white. Thank you.
Are you using one LED reel to go around the entire TV? If so then this is probably an issue with voltage drop across the strip. This means that you need additional power. I suggest using two LED sets with both ports on the Hub to account for this.
They have stopped showing the LEDs on two sides of the three where I have it. Only the first section looks, they have stopped showing off like that while I was using it. What can be the motive? thank you very much
First, confirm you configured the LED setup correctly under Installation Settings.
Next, do the LEDs still not illuminate even in Ambient Mode? If this is the case, then most likely there is an issue with LEDs themselves. Try wiggling the area around where the LEDs stop illuminating to test for a bad connection. I know previously you stated some LEDs were displaying orange, maybe this was a precursor to something failing.
One thing I was about to ask - I am receiving my WS2182Bs for the DIY setup shortly - can I just 'remove' (i.e. cut?) the black-connector that the LEDs currently connect into and then connect the three coloured cables individually into the DIY cable?
