I recently bought the light berry HD kit to set up some ambilights for my TV. I have all the LED's set up around my TV and have all the wiring set up (HDMI splitter > HDMI to analogue > USB video grabber and then the WS2801 RGB LED strip connected to a converter and then to the raspberry GPIO pins).
All the wiring has been done exactly the same as all the tutorials so I doubt that is the problem. The problem lies when i burn any image except the Raspbian .img file to my 8 GB Kingston micro SD card. If I load Raspbian onto it it boots up as normal but I don't know how to run Hyperian from Raspbian.
Hyperion is the program used to run the LED strip as an ambilight.
If I load any pre-loaded Hyperian .img files to the sd card the raspberry turns on but gives no video output and the red and green light stay on solid (no flashing from the green light meaning it is loading from the SD card) i have read up this means it cannot find any boot up file or it OS unable to read the sd card. I thought it might be corrupt but if i format it and again load Raspbian onto it, it boots up like normal again!
