TV-B-Gone Multi-Mode Firmware Mod

From the Adafruit forums, member PorkRhombus has done some serious work on the TV-B-Gone firmware (and even a bit of hardware hacking).

I have developed a new firmware version and thought I’d post about it in case anyone is interested to try it out. I am calling it v2.0 since it is based on v1.2 but it introduces a lot of new functionality and it also involves a small hardware change (described further down with a photo).

The main feature of the new firmware is the fact that it has three modes of operation which are selected at initial power-up.

Read more about the new modes, and hardware modifications on the forum.  Pick up your very own TV-B-Gone here.
