(2014-03-29, 16:30)cryss Wrote: Hello there, as you can see, i am absolutely new here...

i have a raspberry pi running raspbmc and have newly bought a light pack.

my problem is that i can´t get it to run.
i have followed this tutorial, but my lights won´t light.

http://ajpawelski.wordpress.com/how-to-r...-lightpack

have i missed something?
when i fire up raspbmc i always get a "failed to connect to boblightd" error...but what can i do?

please help me!!!
thank you very much!

edit:

i have also tried this one here:
http://ajpawelski.wordpress.com/how-to-r...1-strip-2/

same result...nothing.

putting the lightpack at my PC...it works and starts shining....

Boblight in XBMC is just the XBMC side of the boblight equation. You still need to run boblightd (or hyperion) system wide for the boblight plugin to connect to.
I know in openELEC there's actually a plugin to install boblightd (the daemon) easily, but on raspxbmc you should probably just use hyperion like in the link you posted.

If you follow the guide you posted http://ajpawelski.wordpress.com/how-to-r...1-strip-2/ it should work.

Note the importance of the config file and rebooting to get it working. If you use HyperCon to make your config, you need to make sure you change the output section to point to the right place to find your light pack.

You can find it pretty easily by using
ls /dev/
with the light pack plugged in and unplugged. Whatever disappears and reappears in that list is what you'll want to use (note which USB plug you use may have an effect so always leave it plugged in the same port). If that doesn't work it maybe in a nested folder. On openELEC my adalight appeared in /dev/serial/
