[RELEASE] Official XBMC boblight Addon
Hi everyone.

A few days ago I finally built myself an ambilight clone using boblight, Raspberry Pi and WS2801 pixels (50). Everything is working great except for some random flashes (sometimes white sometimes colored). At first I thought that I had power problems so I replaced PSU, flashes didn't go away. Next I was fiddling with "rate" parameter in boblight configuration, no luck either.

Then I accidentally rewind a section of movie with lots of flashes and flashes repeated in the exact pattern as the first time. So I did it again (videotaped it) and again. The pattern of flashes was exactly the same every time. So I checked another section of movie with flashes and they were repeatable too.

This ruled out problems with Raspberry Pi (or Boblight configuration) and left out only my XBMC with Boblight add-on.

So I started experimenting with add-on. If I use "Slow" preset there are no flashes. If I use "Fast" preset, flashes are frequent. Currently I use custom settings: speed=75, autospeed=0, saturation=1, value=0.9, treshold=16 which produce some flashes but not so often.

I'm using XBMC Frodo (12.2) on Mac mini (2010) with OS X 10.6.8 (w/ all updates). Both mini and RPi are connected to wired 100Mbps network (using fixed IPs). Movies are stored on a NAS drive using SMB shares. DB resides in a MySQL database on NAS. Vertical blank sync is enabled only during video playback.

Does anyone have similar problems? I can post my recordings to YouTube if someone cannot understand what kind of flashes I'm talking about.
