Definitely need a scope, the pulses are really short.
Somewhere (I think in this thread) I posted scope traces of the V1 and V1.1 'like' TV-B-Gone which will give you an idea of the current being pumped into the LED's from those circuits.
FWIW, I just finished a small, single sided 8 LED EHP version TV-B-gone. I'm using a 1 cell lithium polymer battery. Pretty small little package, but I can't find my TSAL6100's to stuff the board with :(
