Android 4.4.3 and 4.4.4 should be fixed
Including Mute commands, Channel up/down commands, Volume up/down commands
Including Continuous Mode
Including Stealth Mode

---Description---
Turn TV's off or on from your IR equipped smartphone.

Send IR Power commands to TV's (Most TV's use the same command for On and Off)
This small application was inspired by the hardware device "TV-B-Gone" by (Mitch Altman/Cornfield Electronics) and Limor Fried/Ladyada/Adafruit listed here:

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


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

Samsung devices with Android 4.2 and higher 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


---Next Goal(s)----
Quick Access menu for selecting the command type
Add more commands for all command types.

---Device Information---
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.
Currently tested with HTC One (m7 & m8)


--Latest Information---


---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.
This is not working with the LG G2 even with Official Firmware at Android 4.4
This is still not working with Sony or Motorola devices, I don't know if or when I can correct this.

Great job dev! Works on Galaxy S4 to my delight. LOVE my TV B Gone remote, and knew it was only a matter of time before the functionality made its way to phones with IR blasters.

Just the app I was looking for 2.0.7 Upgrade restored functionality on 4.4.4 (CM11) on the HTC M7.

Love this app It does everything I need it to... But maybe make a stealth option where its disguised as a calculator or something. Also: some projectors need the code sent twice to shut off.

Almost the real deal. Great app! It actually works and that makes me happy :) It could be a 5/5 app, but it takes a bit to impress me. It doesn't turn off 100% of TVs but that's kind of expected (minus 1). The second lack of star comes from a weird incident that prevented me from using this app the only time I wanted to. Got an error saying it was "unlicensed" before kicking me out. Didn't have wifi at the time. Lame!
