Today i got the starter Kit from Amazon with 2 extra 450 mm Stripes.

 

After installing it, and enabling Video Ambilight Sync i wondered, that exactly

 

NO Games from my favorites are functioning with this Video Sync ??

 

I testet it with my favorite Game Battlefront II = No Ambilight

 

Battlefield V = No Ambilight

 

Assassins Creed Odyssey = Nothing

 

At all 3 Games i have HDR enabled, and the Video Sync only takes the last

I have the same issue since I have a gsync HDR display, to get these games to work you have to turn off gsync and/or HDR. I heard they are able to replicate this issue with gsync but HDR is probably a whole other animal. As the product has been out since fall of last year and these issues are just being addressed you may find it in your best interest to return it back to amazon.

hi @skydiver911 I bought the ls100 kit just yesterday and I´m as disappointed as you are.

 

I´ve always been a corsair lover. I just bought the starter kit. I couldn´t wait to have it. now i´m so disappointed. the advertising doesn´t tell the whole truth. the hardware quality is quite good but there are soooo many problems: the led magnetic bars aren´t strong enough to keep the kit sticked to the monitor. as soon as you touch them they fall down. If your monitor is not perfectly close to a perfectly white wall the light is not so bright. if you set a static full color or the usual rainbow they look good. I set the "ambient illumination" setting (ambilight style). if you set a strong colors wallpaper it´s quite ok. if you watch a movie the light changes has some lag (i think it´s normal) and the colors are mostly quite blended. it´s ok only if it´s a blue sky or green grass but most of the time it looks a kind of white. the worst part is still coming... I started some games and the led stripes don´t work at all. they turn off. the advertising said "CORSAIR iCUE LS100 Smart Lighting Strips can accurately match the colors on your screen, WHATEVER you’re doing with your PC." Whatever means whatever to me. That´s not true. "CORSAIR iCUE LS100 Smart Lighting Strips add a new level of immersion, with in-game integration into games such as Far Cry: New Dawn." Folks, I tried new dawn but the lights were not changing. I just got a sort of light blu aura....... Some people said to try with or without SDK option enabled but without SDK the led don´t work at all. Enabling SDK just a few titles work. Dirt 4, metro exodus, outer worlds, battlefront II, jedi fallen order, we happy few don´t work at all. Battlefield V is working with bleached colors. Gears 5 was working well, the advertised far cry 5 another flop. I´m not sending back this crap to amazon but this time i´m really disappointed... Fortunately I bought the kit with 30% discount. as a youtuber I think I´m going to publish a video to show the truth to people.... be warned if you are planning to buy one... :sigh!:
