1. A button for alternating colors, where it jumps from one color to the other
2. A button for alternating colors where the colors gradually change from one to the other
3. A manual color wheel where you can select the color you want and then it stays on that color

Pretty neat actually.

Ya that is... im looking to set up ambient light that matches the screen... Smile

Yeah in that sense, the color is random Wink

I'm not sure how one would go about doing that ... except for just getting a Philips TV with ambilight Big Grin

How much storage space do you have in total then? Of course I could just calculate it my self, but I'm not familiar with RAID6 and how much space is "wasted" there for parity.

Anyhow, your setup is pretty wicked ...

From the raid calculator I found one server has 21.99TB and the other 65.99TB. Shocked Cool

Got a Sony with custom made 'ambilight' using the boblight software, several rgb led-strips and a controller like this.
Use a different controller myself but that one works like a charm.

Needs more LED Strips on top and Bottom IMO... Also I wouldve placed them on the "back" of the tv not the edges, that way you cant see the diodes.

Need to fill it out!!

Other than that really clean setup!!
