    love it, found it doesn't work on Soniq and TEAC TV's so far, but a lot longer range than the keyring version.
    ive had fun at shopping centre food courts, cinemas, pubs with TAB's. I just need to work out a case for it now. I will probably use a smaller lithium 3V battery to reduce its size as well. (Posted on 23/03/2016)

    Fun project. Quick build time and a healthy library of IR codes allowing TV B Gone to work on most TVs. (Posted on 24/02/2014)
