To quickly describe the context, I have a smart TV connected to the internet via ethernet cable. I mostly use app to watch movies (Netflix, Youtube, Molotov TV...) so no HDMI or USB cables used to read from outside sources.
I would like to create an Ambilight solution but my problem is that I don't know how to get the content displayed by the TV. Do you know if I can do that and if so get me on the track ?
Thanks in advance.
Sadly, there is no output at all...Paul Webster wrote: Does the TV have output available to a video recorder?
If yes ... does it allow the "smart" content to be recorded?
I did not know Kodi but this is the same problem than with the answer of fruitoftheloom. Well, it's not really a problem but if I could avoid to do that I would prefer.Paul Webster wrote: Alternative approach ... are the video sources that you want available via a Kodi add-on?
If yes - then you could use Kodi on RPi to provide your "smart" viewing and then run Hyperion (or similar) on the RPi to drive lights.
For regular broadcast over the air TV you would not get the flashing lights though without additional hardware to take the video signal and push it into RPi (probably via USB video input).
