I setup my pi with raspbmc + hyperion and it works good with one of my lightpack, but I have a 55" LG TV and I want to use 2 lightpacks. I don't know where can add a second device in the conf file. Thx for your answer

I posted an answer to the exact same question a few hours ago on the Raspbmc forum: http://forum.stmlabs.com/showthread.php?tid=11053&pid=96748#pid96748

To save you the click:
Support for multiple devices is still something we would like to add in the future. On request of AJErazzor we added support for multiple lightpacks some time ago. I don't think the device type is mentioned in the config tool, because it was meant as a temporary solution. Instead you should edit the device section after generating a new configuration which has 20 leds. The section should look like the following:

"device" :
{
    "name"       : "MyPi",
    "type"       : "multi-lightpack",
    "output"     : "",
    "colorOrder" : "rgb"
},

This device searches for all connected Lightpack devices and orders them according to the version number they have to make the led order predictable. I believe that the Lightpack firmware should at least be 6.3, because earlier versions don't provide a serial number.

I think that the order in which the leds are behind your TV does not really matter as long as the leds light up correctly. If that is not the case then you either have to change the order in the configuration or behind your TV.

PS: The same question both here and on the Raspbmc forum may be a little bit too much...

If I have three lightpacks, how can I change the order?
