TV B Gone not working with my Attiny85V-10PU.

Post by ColinMaillard »

Hello,

I'm a huge fan of the TV B Gone, and I had the chance to meet Mitch Altman and solder my first kit during one of his workshops, a few years ago.

Recently I wanted to make another one, trying to burn the file myself on an empty Attiny85V-10PU.

I'm using an Arduino Uno as ISP programmer. I attached a 8MHz oscillator, and burned the initialization sequence according to that before transfering any sketch to the Attiny.

I'm able to send a simple blink sketch to the Attiny, and that works, my LED do blinks.

But when I send the TV B Gone's hex file and put the Attiny on a TV B Gone kit (which works well with the original chip), the power LED flashes slowly 2 times and stops, and the IR LED don't light at all (checked with my phone's camera)...

Do you know what's wrong with my way of doing it ?

Is there something about the fuses ?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks !!

Well, it seems that writing all this here helped me to find the solution... Sorry for this question.

Delete if needed...

Indeed, there was something with fuses, that I finally found how to reprogram (thanks to this post here : viewtopic.php?f=23&t=14317).

Thanks.
