Xbmc checker doesn't work on Raspberry Pi B+ with OpenElec 6.0.0 and WS2801 #440
Happy new year!
I'm trying to configure my 104 WS2801 LEDs for use with my Raspberry Pi B+ with OpenElec 6.0.0. I had a working setup with 50 LEDs and upgraded to 104 LEDs. Together with this change I've updated my OpenElec installation from 5 to 6 and created a new hyperion.config.json.
Hyperion is working fine: I see the rainbow swirl start effect after openelec booted Kodi and I can control Hyperion with Hyperion Remote on iOS. I can also set colors from the console, so the hardware is configured correctly.
However, I'm not able to see any lights movement when I play any video on Kodi on my Rasbperry Pi B+. The LEDs stay black. This only happens for video playback directly on the Pi.
If I use the hyperion kodi addon on my Mac, I can easily connect to Hyperion and I see the output of Video played back by Kodi on my Mac.
I've enabled System, Services, Remote and Webserver so that access from outside and inside are allowed. I can control the Pi from webbrowser or from the Kodi iOS app.
So my assumption is that something stopped working with the xbmc checker of Hyperion. It cannot connect to the local Kodi installation and cannot react to any Kodi command or information.
Any help is highly appreciated!
Here's the relevant part of the xmbc checker config and the frame grabber:
That option is checked. Here's the output (redacted the paths):
So it seems to be talking to Kodi but I don't get the information for the color as it seems?
This seems to be an issue with OpenElec: I've tried OSMC with exact same hardware and software configuration and it worked without problems.
