And I guess there's Lightberry, too.

Doesn’t look like a finished polished plug and play end user device. I can only imagine the dramas with setup of this device and other small but not insignificant hardware issues

It might be tied to this... The company was listed as llc privately held with less than 10 employees.

Abstract: A television backlighting apparatus includes an HDMI splitter for splitting a single input HDMI signal into two like output HDMI signals. A video frame analyzer is communicative with one of the HDMI outputs and has a processor executing an instruction set for analyzing the HDMI signal. The analysis converts boundary video values of the HDMI signal to an LED illumination data signal and an LED light source output. An LED light source is attachable to a television and is communicative with the video frame analyzer via the LED light source output. The light source includes at least one LED light and an LED interface cable interconnected with the video frame analyzer and extending from the LED light source output to the at least one LED light.

He owns the patent to it. He might be a murderer or implicated in murder. That might be the reason. Seriously.

This is ok for the very limited few who want to build their own and have time to do this.

No, I'm using light berry. Theres very little setup. Its a raspberry pi and a video capture device though

Analyzing the signal seems like a smarter way than camera's looking at the screen, which I believe is what dreamscreen does/did.

 

 Lightberry doesn't use a camera. It should be the same as Dreamscreen.

No, it doesn't. Too many parts, for my taste. But it's good to know there is an alternative. The HDMI is essential, though. Don't want to be using a camera. Version 5 doesn't appear to be available, yet.
