How do I program a microcontroller (tv-b-gone)? Answered

Hello!
So I want to make a TV-B-Gone, I can't buy the kit, the question is: what do I need to program a microcontroller with the respective firmware? Or instead of programming by myself, is there any other components and etc to replace the ATTINY85V-10-PU from the project?

Thanks!

If using Arduino, this instructable I wrote on controlling a Nikon camera with IR should help you. Just replace the timing I did with the correct timing for a TV. You may need to play a few different signals one after the other to cater for different TV brands, I can't remember whether they all use the same off signal.

I really need to get around to finishing that ible...

You need to google "TV RC5 Codes" to find the timing. Here's one result.
