Anyone has managed to get raspberry pi connected to WS2801 RGB Led Strip?
I have followed the connections here at adafruit: and tried to test the LED with
pixelpi.py runs without error but there is no effect on the LED when I use the fade or chase mode. Right now only the first and the 10th LED lights up when I supply power to the strip.
I have installed the Occidentals v0.2 and have checked that
/dev/spidev0.0 is available.
I am driving the Raspberry Pi using a 5V 2.3A source and the LED with a 5V 1.5A source and pulling both ground together. I have shorted the MOSI and the MISO pins together to make sure that signal is being sent and received correctly.
What am I be missing here ?
