I'm going to get the adalight stuff. Is boblight working with that one too? It's using a Arduino with a Atmega328 Microcontroller. Since boblight is supposed to work with Atmolight (Atmega8) or Karatelight I just want to get sure, that is also going to work with Adalight.
The protocol described at https://github.com/adafruit/Adalight/blo...am.pde#L42
might be compatible with boblightd, if a custom boblight.conf is used, and as long as you use boblight from http://code.google.com/p/boblight/
(the old boblight doesn't support a custom prefix).
The only thing I'm not sure about is the checksum value, it says "high byte XOR low byte XOR 0x55", but doesn't specify the high and low bytes of what exactly, if it's the high and low bytes of the number of leds then it should work with boblight, since the number of leds is static.
If that fails I could always add custom support for adalight.

That's a pretty awesome guide. The only thing I am curious about is what the cpu usage is like at 1080p on a somewhat underpowered htpc such as e350 (In the guide they say an older atom barely did 13fps at 800x600 and core2 based macbook air got barely 30fps at 800x600).
In their forums, someone wrote cpu usage is very low, but he is using an i7
Not really a good comparison example for me
I guess if the underclocked core2 macbook air struggles, there is no hope for e350 either?? What about the AMD A4 I wonder?
I suggest just trying it out, you should be able to run the software without having any hardware attached, as long as you have a serial port to write to.
