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.
