Well usually one (additionally) has to install CombustD and Ruby-usb to get the AMBX-device working under linux / XBMC. There are several guides out there but they are only working for the non-svn-version of boblight (http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=71912).
There are ways of getting it to work with the SVN-version of boblight...I hope bleze can shed some light on this!
Once properly configured the AMBX-device just acts like any other ambilight. Hope this helps and I also hope that you can integrate this into your addon!

Could you post your boblight.conf please.

wikking, I basically followed cervix's guide from here: http://stmlabs.com/forum/topic/tutorial-for-ambilight-on-appletv-linked-2/page/2
This got combustd and ruby installed. Instead of the old boblight I built SVN version as shown in this thread.
Memphiz helped me configure and setup boblight to start correctly. Here is my boblight.conf file: http://pastebin.com/AqFPpzbM
He also inserted '#!/usr/bin/ruby' at the top of the boblight.rb file.
Like I've written before, the colors lag and are off. If someone optimizes this and fixes the colors, please post boblight.conf for AMBX. Also I have dropped frames probably due to overloaded CPU in ATV1 (I have broadcom chip of course)

Memphiz, this has been accepted into the Openelec repositories and is available for users.
Can you merge my pull request for this script and push to the official XBMC repo? Right now users have to manually download my version or use boblight-X11 for it to work.

I'm not really happy with that pr tbh. Because it is so special. Isn't there a more generic way to add librarys to openelec (a general path or so) and adding this path to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH? This would be more generic and wouldn't need any adaption to the addon.

Unfortunately, there isn't.
I've been working with the openelec guys on this, and boblightd has been developed according to their standards. It seems this is the best/only way to do it.

can you test a build with setting and export LD_LIBRARY_PATH like we do with the PATH in https://github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/blob/master/packages/sysutils/busybox/profile.d/path.conf ? maybe this can work too and this solution would be much nicer then using openelec's special paths inside the addon. i think for the future and real binary addon support this must be included in XBMC without such a hack.

Seems some recent revisions in the code caused these errors. I used an older revision (svn checkout -r 400 <URL> <dest>) which compiled without a problem.
