Ambient Lighting setups?
I've been thinking of finding a USB powered LED string light as an ambient light source and affixing it to the back side of my 55R617 along the perimeter of the TV so that the lights themselves are not visible. The wall behind the TV is about 15-18" back. Has anyone else here already tried this and if so do you have any helpful hints to offer?
Also, does anyone know for certain if the USB jack is tied to the "power on" and/or "stand-by" settings? I did a quick test with the TV off and the jack also appeared to be off. I turned the TV on and saw power, but when I turned the TV off again the USB jack was still "on." I didn't time it but a few minutes later it was off again.
It would be nice to just plug in a string of warm white lights and have it turn on and off with the TV but I can live with it staying on for a few minutes as long as it does in fact turn off on its own.
