When we were putting together the TV-B-Gone kit, we started imagining a dystopian future, filled with televisions, where this kit would be super useful and we'd be a hero for having one.  And while maybe that's dramatic, the TV-B-Gone is perfect for playing pranks on your friends during the Super Bowl or getting some peace and quiet during dinner.

The TV-B-Gone is a kit that, when soldered together, allows you to turn off almost any television within 150 feet or more.  It works on over 230 total power codes - 115 American/Asian and another 115 European codes.  You can select which zone you want during kit assembly.

This is an unassembled kit which means that soldering is required - but it’s very easy and a great introduction to soldering in general.  The kit’s powered by 2x AA batteries - that aren’t included - and the output comes from 2x narrow beam IR LEDs and 2x wide-beam IR LEDs.  

The TV-B-Gone covers almost any television from the brands listed below, including the latest flat-screens and plasma TVs.  There’s also lots more info on the TV-B-Gone website.

    Another great Ada Fruit product, loads of fun building, and using, managed to fit it in a small 40 pack Pikster case. (Posted on 2/07/2017)

    Loved this little project. Takes a couple of hours, works well and no programming. A lot of fun! (Posted on 19/04/2017)

    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)
