Hyperion USB Capture not working after updating to 2023.7.0

I used to be able to turn on and off a Hyperion light, which would enable and disable the LED output of the light, which would be USB Capture by default.

Now when it turns on it sets as a solid colour, not the USB Capture. The USB Capture is not in the list of effects and the USB Capture entity is showing as disabled.

There’s a bug report raised for this, but apparently it’s a change in the way the integration works.
(Check the “known issues” in the integration - https://github.com/home-assistant/core/issues/95994)
The way I’ve now got my automation to switch to the USB capture input is to call 2 services, one to turn off the light, then one to switch on the USB switch:
Note that one is a “light” the other is a “switch”

  - service: light.turn_off
    data: {}
    target:
      entity_id: light.<your_instance>
  - service: switch.turn_on
    data: {}
    target:
      entity_id: switch.<your_instance>_component_usb_capture
mode: single

Hope this helps!
