LED backlight, analog technology Philips Ambilight for Android TV & TV BOX.
Adaptive background lighting Ambilight, without exaggeration, an amazing technology. With such adaptive illumination, eyes become less tired when viewed in the dark, the presence effect is enhanced, the image viewing area extends, etc. Ambilight is applicable not only to video and photo content, but also to games. The implementation of such a backlight on the Android TV set-top box or Android TV with the installed version of Android above 5.1 (Lollipop) is now possible thanks to the Ambient light Application for Android program.
!!! It is important to know !!!
The picture from the TV tuner is not processed at the Android OS level, the backlight with regular tv channels will not work. The backlight works only in Android OS applications that do not use protected content. 4K performance depends only on the capabilities of the equipment. Unfortunately, programs such as YouTube and Netflix use protected content, the backlight in such programs will not work.
Ambient light Application for Android is one of the few programs for Android that allows you to implement Ambilight backlighting without using a desktop PC, as in most other options. Android Ambilight Application has three main operating modes, such as:
SINGLE COLOR MODE – This mode allows you to include all the backlighting with one color selected in the program settings. This mode is well suited as a night room lighting, surprisingly changing the familiar interior.
COLOR EFFECT MODE – This is the mode for displaying color effects. Dynamic backlighting can change colors, depending on which of the preset effects you have selected in the settings.
SCREEN CAPTURE MODE – This is probably the most in-demand mode of the backlight, which allows you to change its colors depending on what content is currently displayed on the screen.
Only works for YouTube would like it to recognize hdmi inputs and for apps. But app does function lights static mode.
Work Great but for now the app is crashing almost every other app in my box about 80% of the time. If the service is on and I open the settings of my android box, the setting app crash, if I open chrome, chrome crash and the saddest thing for me is my STBEmu for my tv channels... The image freeze after a minute or two and it's why I bought the system and the your app, for the tv and movies. I know it doesn't freeze or crash if i turn the service off. My Box use Android 7.1.2 … Do you know why it does that???
Would be great if there were more settings like in ambibox such as zone control and average colour
Works great with my LED Strip form EBay, connected to my Nvidia Shield. Works with all the apps I use(Kodi, Emby, Plex, Youtube) Just a shame it does not work with Netflix or Disney+. My only issue is that everytime I sleep or restart the device I have to click on the allow usb serial for it to work not sure if there is a fix for this?
