Rather than buy premade TV-B-Gones, someone had the bright idea of ordering parts and building/programming them ourselves.

Programming and Setup

This assumes you know some basics about Micro-cotrollers in general. Since this project uses the Amtel AVR chips (as opposed to the also-common Microchip PIC chips), you should read this introduction if you are not familiar with micro controller basics. Mac Users If you are working on a Mac, I'd suggest | reading adafruits setup instructions. They are slightly dated, but as far as I can find, they are the best and most clear.

AVR Programmers

TBD. There are a lot of programmers. Far has tried building one of them (untested) and has LadaAda's ATTiny prorgammer on order.
