If you need it to go all the way around to create a square, you'll need one and an extension probably. You don't need to get two full strip kits because you don't need, or want, the second controller. Just get an extension kit, plug it in to the end of the main strip and that will give you 120" controlled by the single controller. 120" is in the vicinity of what you'd need depending on the shape of the back of your TV.

Keep in mind that Hue strips really do not bend all that well (the adhesive doesn't take to it) so you might need to allow an extra inch or two in your calculations for corners, and probably reinforce the adhesive with some sort of hook (or just tape). You can splice them, which is what I did on my TVs, but unless you're really comfortable rewiring electronics you'll need to spend some money on 3rd party connectors ($$$) and still keep in mind you can only cut Hue strips every 13" which, on a 50" TV, would mean you'd only fit 1 strip on the left and right.

Tl;dr - Just get one and an extension and be ready to reinforce the built in adhesive when you go around corners. Depending on where you have your TV, on a stand or mounted to a wall, you may be able to get away with a "U" shape along the sides and top, in which case you can get away with one and no extension.

I never really liked the adhesive on these strips. I've opted to using these and some zip ties to help preserve the strips

Thanks for the link/info. .75in works well for the light strip?

For the bulbs they added a "brighter" version. 1600 lumens instead of 800. I think the 2020 strip is just brighter and can be cut and spliced unlike past versions.

I don't know if this is that version (since they're adding the brighter versions in addition to the dimmer ones).

I used exactly the same thing. I have Hue strips all over, behind a couple TVs, behind both of my computer monitors and then a couple as accent lights. Except for the strip mounted to a clean and flat metal surface, the built in adhesive failed every time so I went with these and it is perfect. Really lets you handle corners better anyway.

50 would be tight but you could move in enough to look good. I use 2 for a 65 with some overlap. I will say that having two, you can create some nice gradient animations. Nice username, Coop

I am using the play bars behind my TV and monitors but used to use a LED strip. For me I just bought he 90 degree LED strip connectors.

Just make sure to get one that matches the number of connectors on your LED strip.

I used those 90 degree connectors for the cheap strips I would buy from Amazon. I don't trust myself to use them on expensive Hue strips

Yeah the ones I use might be a touch bigger but I think these are fine. I just use a few for each edge of the TV and it holds great.

Why not post the one that works with these strips? They look like 5 pins to me? Do they match Sylvania, Osram, or Lightify?
