    Try putting at least a 1 space gap around each strip so they're not too close to your other Razer stuff, if they're too close to anything sometimes they'll spin or move by themselves.

    If someone is interested in how the HDK performs with the Razer Synapse Visualizer, here is a video:

    Its not the best quality but i think you can imagine, how it works :D

  4. I am having this problem with synapse 3 only seeing one HDK, did you ever figure this out? I am trying to sync two with ambient awareness...

  5. Just read through the comments two see if we can use two HDK's and it looks like the answer is no, will there be an update to allow for the use of two HDK's ? I mean the picture that made me buy the HDK's and extra strips clearly uses 6 light strips or more... Or at least a beta testing that would allow for this ???[​IMG]

    Ya, I have to agree there. The picture is misleading. It's a max of 4 strips sadly. It's the same with all products, some people have 2 base stations or 2 Firefly's. You can only control 1 of each item.

    If you want pre-build chroma profile for a specific game that dont ask razer :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: this profile make game developer like blizzard on diablo and overwatch. Synapse just read profile in connect module as external app.
     
  10. In regards to running two HDK devices, is it possible to have synapse 3.0 send the same signal to two usb ports? Or is there a program that would clone the signals being output to a USB port and duplicate those to another assigned USB port?

    from what I know synapse only sees one device if two of the same are connected. But I'm not sure if that's the case for any non-razer apps

    Ok so i have been browsing through all of this but I did not find any real answer:

    Is there ANY kind of cable extension for the Razer HDK? I have been searching for this desperately...

    I dont mean the extender kit with additonal LED strips - I have all of them. I just want to palce some of the strips further away from the HDK controller box... But the connection cables are just waaaay to short :slightly_sad: :slightly_sad:

    Don't have if this is the answer you're looking for as you already have those extender kit as well. Hehe.

    Well yeah I only want longer connection cables, not the led strips themselves. I mean - if - it would work, hell maybe I would even go so far and buy another complete Extender Kit and "throw away" the LED strips - BUT the connection cables are male/male - so there is no way of using another pair to extend the cable.

    And this connector cable just looks soo proprietary..... -.-

    If I'm not wrong, their justifications for this is that the light will display correctly and accurately as in brightness settings and effects sync across their chroma devices that's why the limit of that extension. Not sure if that's actual reason as well.

    If you need to put around your room, can you consider those Philips Hue RGB as they can be sync using Synapse for more immersive lighting around you.

    That sounds like a good idea.
