Anyone using the Phillips Hue Play Gradient lightstrip in their movie room?

I am thinking about getting one of these- they seem to be really cool, I want to put it behind my TV. Any eon have any experience with these or any of the Hue Play lights that sync to the image on screen? Any compatibility issues with K?

Thank you

I have a room full of hue lights (including gradient strips). Works great with K and I think it adds to the movie experience. It can struggle with Dolby Vision and HDR10+, so outside of K you can run into incompatibilities.

We have 77" LG tv, my hue light is attached to back of tv, and I run it all the time at 30%. Highly recommend Hue.

If all I care about is running it with K, will I have problems? Also, I was reading about how it is an older HDMI pass-through port or something, and this can hurt the picture- is this true? Do you lose any of the HDR picture on 4K?

I can’t promise you won’t have problems with K, but I can tell you with my HTP-1 and K, it handles HDR and syncs with no issues. I use the 2nd HDMI output of the AVP to the sync box, so there is no passthrough or image degradation possible (HDMI out 1 goes straight to the display).

OK so you are using the second output of your AV receiver to the hue sync box?
