RE: Adding LED Lighting to Glass Stand

Ian986, I can't see your image. Please repost. 

Other than that, I added ambient LED lighting to my TV, looks great. Kids love it! We use it in dark blue mode as this compliments the blue lighting from the Onkyo-875 AV receiver. After reading the article below I ordered the lights mentioned.

The lower LED light doesn't fit under the TV as the wall bracket leaves no space, so the lights seem to be coming from the glass stand and the light also shines behind the HiFi rack.

Hi TnA200,

Any chance you could post a pic of your system with the lights on please?

The images on the links look good, but interested what they look like in a real home.

Thanks

Erby

You can't add an image directly, you need to link to it from somewhere like flickr or photobucket (or in fact any direct weblink that ends with .jpg will do).

I use Ikea dioder lighting strip. Check my home cinema pics. Ilea has more options for integrated lighting to suit your requirements, & they're inexpensive.

Finally managed to get a picture of the LED lights online. Fun stuff. Mostly I use the dark blue lights as it matches my Onkyo Receivers lights and it's not too bright as to distract from the movie.

PS. I can't seem to get the image to show...

I use Ikea Dioder lights[white] behind the bezel of my plasma and it helps to make the picture more dynamic and helps to reduce eye strain.

RE: Adding LED Lighting to Glass Stand

I think a few people on these forums have added LED backlighting to their AV setups, like BigBoss. Anyone else? It would be great to see everyone elses system too. Smile
