    Question Ambilight with Teensy 2.0 / 3.0 / 3.1

    Hello,

    I want to build an Ambilight/Boblight system for my 50" TV running XBMC on Windows and for a second XBMC on Raspberry Pi.
    After some reasearch I came to the conclussion to use Teensy instead of Arduino, because many Arduino boards seem to have a slow USB IC or driver issues for this kind of projects.

    Currently I plan to install 216 LEDs type WS2812B.
    I found some projects using Teensy 2.0 and one other with Teensy 3.0

    I believe all Teensy boards should be able to handle 200 RGB LEDs, but I am not sure, if Teensy 3 or even 3.1 has advantages compared to 2.0 e.g. higher frame rates.
    The power supply I am going to use has a remote on/off feature (input 0V-0.8V = on, 4V-10V =off), I would like to use. So I need one output pin for the power supply.

    This is going to be my first project on the on an Arduino/Teensy plattform.
    I have some programming skills, but mostly .NET and scripting languages (Python, PHP, Javascript,...).
    I would prefer, if the software is more and out-of-the-box experience than a development from scratch.

    I am thankful for any comment and suggestion.

    Cheers,
    Michael
