    Hi everybody, :)

    Today i've spend my time to reproduce the tv-b-gone (an universal remote) version 1.2 from Ladyada website (the schematic is available on this page https://raw.github.com/adafruit/TV-B-Gone-kit/master/pcb/tvbgone3sch.png ). I've wired all the components on a breadboard, but unfortunately it doesn't works.

    After pushing the switch, the led indicator is blinking very slowly, and after that the IR led blink too, but i'm not able to turn off my Samsung TV.

    I don't understand precisly why it doesn't works so i hope you will help me to solve this problem.
    To make you easily understand, i've attached a picture to this topic and a video.

    Thanks a lot for your help/answers. :)

    And Sorry for my bad "frenchie" english, i'm doing my best to imrpove it.

    Ps : If you want i can attach another picture of this project.

    Do you have the microcontroller programmed with the correct pulse codes, with anything at all? I ask only because you make no mention of programming?
