Making it to send the code longer to TV

by MrGentlemen on Mon May 07, 2012 4:25 am


I Have make an TV-B-Gone with the Board and the chip from the shop, and it works good.

But sone TVs here in EU need a longer signal (need to push the button longer on the RC) before the TV goes off.

How can i modify the firmware to make them send longer instead of 1-2 sec ?

IR remote control signals are on the order of 70ms in length. They repeat at about 10 times per second for as long as you hold the button.

There is no such thing as a TV that requires you to hold the button for longer than 1/10 second. If your TV is not responding, it is because it is not recognizing the signals. It could be because you are too far away, or because you are not pointing the remote directly at the TV, or because the battery in the remote is weak.
