I have used Ikea Dioders on the back of my tv for a while and am very happy with the look/colour.

Having said that, I'm hoping to be able to refine the control so that the lights can either be controlled by remote or just automatically turn on with the tv. What would be the best way to accomplish this?

If I just went with turning on automatically, I assume that a 'smart' power bar would be the easiest. Does anyone have recommendations for these?

I put one of these behind mine just today:

didn't find out until after they arrived that they don't come with a power convertor though, so add another 5bux for one of those. I've got a more 'expensive' version that I used for lighting up my platform seating, looks very similar but has a few more features and came with everything needed. I was trying to do it on the cheap this time, since I wasn't sure if I'd really ever use the bias lighting.

works decent, but, dimming feature doesn't work, and 'white' isn't very white. if I had to guess I'd say it's like 7500k or there about.


red/green/blue(there's some other options as well)

*note, the blue actually does look blue in real life. not sure what happened in the pic to make it look pinkish in parts

so my verdict, is that I would not recommend the exact model I used, as I think it'd be nice to be able to dim them as desired. but I like the general idea. they are remote controlled, color changeable, and if you plug it into a switched outlet, it'll remember the last setting.
