Bought it after having a led-strip behind the TV for years.

This adds so much more to the picture. Blacks look realy black and it realy offers an immersive touch to it.
Don’t get over enthusiastic by setting all to 100% brightness, the it will distract you. But with the correct settings you don’t even notice it’s on. Untill you turn it off. It’s then you immediatly notice you are missing something!

So in short, it’s way too expensive :roll_eyes:, but worth the investment if you are a fan of it! :slight_smile:
I bought the DIY 4K kit with 55leds p/mtr. Which is double of what the original Dreamscreen ledstrip has.

I even went one step further and installed a HDMI splitter to capture the HDMI signal on a PC running capture software and the Philips HUE Sync app (entertainment room setup).

As a result the HUE lamps also change according to what’s displayed on the TV. :slight_smile:

Yeah when then I would go full 4K with 2 kickers. It does look intriguing to have :slight_smile: Been debating a long time to finally invest in one.

Anything particular I need to pay intention when buying it? I am planning on using with my Apple TV 4k on a 65in 4K TCL and a PS4 Pro

I suggest to buy a DIY kit and note that there is a max of 250 leds in total that can be controlled.
So don’t think you can have a strip with 66led p/mtr on a 65" TV :wink:

For a large screen it’s better to buy one extra DIY cable and a second ledstrip.
One used for the left and top of the screen and one on the right and bottom of the screen.
That way you don’t run into powerdrain and the last leds in line displaying a different color because of the lack of power. Furthermore don’t buy more that 4 sidekicks. They are controlled over Wifi and it’s known that more than 4 can cause lag.

Last but not least, the software and sidekicks are having teething problems :stuck_out_tongue: and are not the most stable out there, but they are release firmwares to fix the known issues and the adhesive of the strip is &^%&$&%
So I used a hot glue-gun to fix it :slight_smile:
