ok I see the kl430 is now avlailble si I want o use this to back light my tv. But sicne the strips are flkat they cannot be curved to go into a oval to go around the width of the TV. so I am looking at having to cut the strips into smaller horziontal strips but how do you connec them togther? the back of the tv would have 4 stips 1 for top, bottom, lef anf right side but the package i dont see a way to connect the 4 smaller strips toethegr so they function as one strip? Has anyone else done this and how dod you get past this?

Thanks, Greg

What you are trying to do is possible but not with one strip.  You would need 4 seperate strips (each box comes with 2 strips and a power supply/wireless box.   The problem is once you cut the strip the end that is cut off is useless.  Since you plan of having it placed on all 4 sides of your TV that would require each peice to have its own power supply and be set up seperatly.  One Alternative that may work for you,  (I assume you are trying to get color effect on the wall behind the TV) is to adhere a single kit to the back of your entertainment senter.  See the video below as an example.

I use it just like the video, ie. I have a single strip on the back of the TV stand/cabinet and that provides more than enough ambient light against the wall. I will take a photo tonight to get you an example.

@gregh Seems to be a great idea, and as I know you can use some led strips that could be banded. I remember when I bought led strip lights to decorate some frames in my house, I could curve them to take the shape of the frame. The strips that I bought were very flexible and easy to install. Moreover, I could shorten them on the dependence on the length I needed. Finally, the led strips looked so nice on the frames. Maybe you should look more on online stores and you'll find something suitable for you.

@gregh  You will not be able to connect them. You can cut the LED strip, but one end must always have a path to the power source. There is one exit to the fork in the skein of tape. So the more pieces, the more wires will have to be soldered. The work is not pleasant and very long, rather painstaking. I advise you to either try to install the tape to cut it two times at most or look for another option. Maybe you will find individual LEDs. I buy my strips at https://www.ukled.co.uk/led-drivers.html , you can look for something suitable there. But it will be very inconvenient to cut the tape many times.

I have over 40 of these.  One continuous strip around your TV is your best bet it you want full color effects around it.  I've done it both ways on my TVs; two separate strips in a row or one continuous strip.  As far as mounting it, Amazon sells led clips that are super cheap and super strong. I strategically place those around the back of my TV and then gently curve the LEDs around the corners.  As long as the lights are firmly in the grip of the led clips on both sides of the corners, it will hold fine.  It will also look fine against the wall.
