    I run hyperion with the wireless extension. Basically I have hyperion running on a raspberry pi zero W taking the signal from a HDMI splitter in my AV shelf and a ESP8266 board connected to the LEDs. I have some more work to do to get everything to look clean but its been a fun project. You should check out their website.

    BTW,
    I’m all done (with the minor exception of cutting a little bit more foam for the HVAC drop down to fill in the few missing pieces)

    100% brightness red

    5% brightness on red only which is dark enough to use during movies with no negative impact to the image.

    Rerolled equipment rack area (I still like the original look better here, but that's exactly where the left front wide speaker needed to go. I dropped the 27" monitor to a 22" monitor and pulled down the Mad Maxx Fury Road Sound Treatment. :cry: )

    I like the effect and I'm happy with it. I'll be exploring some of the HDMI magic boxes that match the RGB color to the main themes on the projected image.

    Looks amazing and I bet it sounds even better. Wish I had a setup like that.

    I only have two subs and still need to turn the volume down pretty low. Your sub setup looks like it could be lethal :D
