I own 1st gen WD TV Live.
I guess most of you heard for Ambilight feature from Philips TV’s
I was looking for alternatives and most of them are for a PC. I wanted a standalone solution.
So, I found out that you can buy RCA version in Russia (mass production), DVI version can be made custom (around 200$)
I don’t know if DVI standalone kit will be able to read data coming from hdmi/dvi adapter (secure data)…
Now there could be 3 different cases
1st case (DVI with splitter):
2nd (rca with splitter):
3rd (direct video through device itself | DVI in/out):
Can anyone tell me if any of these might work?
I also want to know if there would be any quality loss (Not a problem for ambilight kit, just tv screen)
How reliable are splitters and adapters?
Don’t laugh if this is ridiculous, I’m no technical expert…
I don’t need sound through HDMI, I’m using optical.
And yes, I would be that stupid to buy all of that just for the ambient light
