TV B Gone is a hardware project that sends IR 'Power' commands to turn off televisions.


--- Temporary Notice ---
Latest version 1.3.1 should fix HTC issues. I can verify that the m7 is working correctly. Please let me know about the M8, or other HTC devices with the IR blaster.

Also, this is not working with the LG G2 even with Official Firmware at Android 4.4 -- Work is in progress for this
The LG Flex (D955) is also not working, I expect this is the same issue as the G2, no ETA on a fix yet.

This is still not working with Sony or Motorola devices, I don't know if or when I can correct this.

--- Required! ---
You MUST have the built in IR device for this software to work. (IR Blaster)

Samsung devices with Android 4.0 to 4.3 AND the IR blaster like the S5, S4, S4 Mini, Galaxy Tab 2, Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy MEGA, will work like it has.
This will not work with the S3, or the Note 2.
Also the clone (or 'fake') Note3 does not work, the IR module is different.

This will also work with the HTC One m7 and m8

Also, I can not guarantee compatibility with aftermarket ROMS on your device


This DOES NOT work with LG, SONY, OR MOTOROLA devices yet.

---Next Goal(s)----
Correct LG G2 (& G3, G Pro) issues --- G2 On order for testing
Add learning function for HTC devices with the IR receiver to import unknown codes.
Add Mute commands
Add 'Continuous' mode
Add 'Grundig' codes


---Device Information---
Version 1.3.1 should correct problems with HTC devices.
Currently tested on Samsung Galaxy Tab2 tablets, and Samsung S4, and S5 phones, and Note 3 but should work with Samsung devices with android 4.0 and higher that have the IR transmitter.
We have included the most popular US and European power commands.


--Latest Information---
Updates to correct HTC device issues


---Compatibility---
Some users report this app is not compatible if you are using CyanogenMod depending on phone, and version.
I've been told this did NOT work with the 'Fake Samsung Galaxy Note 3' device.
Currently it is not working with LG, MOTOROLA, and SONY devices.
