TV-B-Gone now running on Arduino

I've ported the TV-B-Gone firmware to the Arduino. You can download the code at It's not as portable as the real TV-B-Gone but the Arduino-B-Gone(?) can be used by anyone with an Arduino.

This works pretty great, Thanks. I am going to make a mini shield for the button and leds. (old TV remotes are a great source for IR LEDs).

Hi all,

This is just my first post in this forum. I was looking for TV-B-Gone and Arduino on the internet and found your port. It is great, works perfectly. Thanks!

I saw in the code it is actively waiting for the pushbutton to be pressed. I add some code to sleep and wake up when the button is pressed to save some power. The pushbutton must be connected to pin 2 instead of pin 1.

Basically I just copied some code from
Arduino TV-BGone port with sleep code
