RasPlex - "Ambilight" with Hue bulbs?

Hi there,

I am sorry but I was not able to find something that matched a hundred percent.

Obviously I don't mean "real" Ambilight behind the TV, I want an add-on/extension/plugin that grabs the video signal, calculates an average color and adjusts the lights accordingly in real time.

Is there something available for Plex or RasPlex?

Thanks in advance!

    Hi there,

    I have such a thing working. You need to use hyperion. It has build in support for philips hue. But i do not use philips hue anymore, because the bridge is to slow and the color was running like 3 seconds behind what was on the screen. Right now i use LIFX wifi lightbulbs.

    Good luck!
