Exapod ported TV-B-Gone, the universal TV off button, to the tiny PIC12F1840. He used the free version of the Hi-Tech compiler so the optimizations leave a lot to be desired, but the code only uses 17% of program memory. The prototype was made on a protoboard and an SOIC packaged PIC. Via the forum.
Exapod built the USB IR Toy on a DIY PCB and programmed it with the TV B GONE firmware. To give it a stealth touch he stuck it into an old Nokia phone case. It’s powered by the phone’s battery, which runs 4 IR diodes for extended range and usage time. …found an old nokia […]
megabug posted a TV B Gone with huge range: tvbgone firmware from Ian (irtoy) which works like a charm here. 10 IR LEDs from Vishay (some high power stuff afair) in parallel pulsed with up to 4.2V from the battery! I Think the only voltage drop or resistor is in the mosfet I used. ;) […]
exapod built a TV-B-Gone using a PIC 18F2550 microcontroller and a few LEDs. It runs the IR Toy port of Adafruit’s TV B Gone kit firmware.
exapod made a TV B Gone firmware for the Infrared Toy using a list of European TV POWER OFF codes. Grab the firmware in the forum: i controlled all the function with the mplab sim and now it works, it turns off the european television. I attached the code. Thanks ian for the suggestion. Now […]
