Remember the article on Tv-B-Gone kit ? Yes it was a nice project that you can play with, but here come big-brother with its learning function. It means you can now teach the kit to turn off every TV imaginable. The current hardware includes an Atmega 168, a USB port, a 2MB Atmel dataflash (for storing all sorts of codes), a learning mechanism (which can detect the correct carrier frequency), four buttons (selecting transmitter and learning mode, enable USB, …) and of course four powerful infrared LEDs.
