The Off Button

The Off Button


*Compatibility*
This remote control will work on any Android phone that has an IR blaster to control TVs. The only exlcusion is LG G2 before Android KitKat

*How does it work?*
The Off Button has a database of 367 universal IR codes that will power off any TV in seconds. This functions like a TV-B-Gone for your phone!

*How do I use The Off Button?*
The steps needed to control any TV are simple:
1. Direct the signal towards the TV you want to control.
2. The universal remote control then cycles through every IR power code.
3. During this cycle, the correct IR power code will be sent from the universal remote control to direct your TV to turn off.

*Saved Codes*
Does cycling through all codes take too long? Now you can save a specific code that turns off a specific brand or model of TVs. Saved codes come directly from the 367 code database, all you need to do is directly specify the name and number of the signal.

*Send Continuously*
Utilize the send continuously check box to control a whole wall of TV's remotely. You can also continuously cycle a single TV just by aiming the remote control blaster at the TV.

*The On Button?*
Want to turn the TV back on again? Remote control signals which turn TV's off also will turn TV's back on. Similar to your remote control, the IR code is merely a universal power toggle. It will directly turn the TV off or on depending on the current state of the TV.

The Off Button will not universally work on any phone. Only phones with IR Blasters to direct the TV signals are compatible. If your device is able to direct TV's like a remote control and this app says it is not compatible, please contact me so I can turn off the incompatibility warning for your device.

*Tips*
-Make sure you are pointing the unlock button (IR Blaster) of the phone directly at the TV as you would a remote. The distance needs to be similar as well
-It does take several minutes to go through all 360+ codes, but the most common codes will be in the first 50 - 100. I can't speed this up any, as transmitting an IR code takes a finite amount of time. Even a universal remote control would take several minutes to cycle through all codes. Try saving a code for quick access!

*Feature requests*
I am actively working on new features to change the way you turn off TV's! Have an interesting idea to incorporate to the universal TV Off app? Send me an email and I'd love to consider it in an upcoming version!

*Planned improvements*
-Widget support

*Recent updates*
-Major improvements, code sending is now 3 times faster!
-Newer Samsung Galaxy devices are now fully supported
-LG G3 should be supported at this time

Recent changes:
-Major improvements for Samsung devices.
-Devices now send codes 3 times faster
-Fixed a major bug that caused newer Samsung Galaxy devices to work incorrectly. All Samsung devices with IR blasters are now fully supported.

Absolute mayhem This works great on my S5 mini have had some fun with this, once you figure out the code of the tv set it to repeat and enjoy. Would love it if you had a timing setting so I could choose the delay between beams.
