1.)Since the Ambilight system is primarily used of TV’s and computer monitors I looked into the process of how to the Ambilight system is set up to work on these devices.
The example I have discovered uses an Arduino nano, mini breadboard, a few breadboard cables, 12v DC power Adapter, Double sided tape, 4-5 Paperclips and zip ties.This example works with PC’s running the “bambilight” software.
2.) The software used in the previous research only works on windows PC’s and I need so software that can run on Raspeberry Pi’s OS.
According to this website, hyperion and boblight can be installed onto the raspberry pi to execute the same task as bambilight.
