Time has come, Ambilight 1.5 has met the end of the road...
With the advent of a new TV on the way, its time to revisit the Ambilight once again, this time a full rebuild.
As for a teaser, the new system will be comprised of the following.
1x Teensy 3.2 (to replace the arduino running Adalight, this has a faster CPU and can handle the increased light count)
1x Arduino Micro (this will actually only control a 5V relay, allowing me to shut off the optional "behind the speaker" LEDs)
420 RGBW (CW 6,000k-7,000k) LEDs. 300 for the TV itself and 60 behind each speaker (30 zones, 2 LEDs per zone)
This will all sit behind a new Samsung 65inch 4K Curved TV, and I will post build pictures and video during the process.
