If you want pre-build chroma profile for a specific game that dont ask razer 😛 this profile make game developer like blizzard on diablo and overwatch. Synapse just read profile in connect module as external app.
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 😞 😞

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.
Hi,

Still not working. I tried one more time 😃

Thx for the test,

would love to know why they wont implement something like this, sounds pretty basic to me...
Sadly i got the second HDK before your answer... intresting thing is in Overwatch both HDK are spoken to...
Really? So if you load Overwatch and keep Razer Synapse open, the game will color output to both devices? Or do you have Hue sync open or the game loaded into Razer Synapse linked games area in the app?
Well the game runs under Razer Connect, but the Game outputs to both HDK correctly, wich the Studio can’t, isn’t it intriguing xD
Hmmm I wonder if I can add a "game" manually and direct it to razer synapse ...

I wonder if there is chroma file for overwatch
you could copy and paste into the razersynapse location when you try and add razer syanpse as a game...

I presume this still wouldn’t work as the studio and the GUI of the Synapse aren’t showing the extra HDK for configuration...
I have the Philips Hue Play bar and Razer Synapse 3. Its works initially till a software update on Synapse then its experience random Play bar not lighting up.

I uninstall both Philips Hue and Synapse and install just the Synapse 3. Lucky for me it works.

The advantage of Philips Hue Bridge is low latency. It's fast enough to turn your house into a disco joint.
