Ambilight Clone

Yet another Ambilight clone build.
So after spotting a video on Hack-a-day I thought it a worthy project for me to invest a bit of time and build one.
I quickly sourced a couple of individually addressable LED strings from Aliexpress but later found my choice to be less than ideal, but not a show stopper.
The UCS1903 chip required a special patched version of Adalight in order to run. The patched version utilised the 2.1 FastLED branch to allow the controller pass commands to the individual LEDs. 

Here are the components:

Hardware:

Software:

The result:
I'm quite happy with the result. Here are some pics and videos (sorry about the quality)
Boblight settings are set to default.

Ambilight





I did have some trouble with the Boblight configuration due to the unusual number of LEDs I ended up using (60)
Here is a comprehensive list of prefixes for a large number of LED configurations:
