A new version of the control software is available (6.10):

Look in manufacturer web (can't link to it, it is in Chinese, but download link is easy to find there).

It's free to download.

Why would you want to build it, you can get it so cheap from china. less than 30 with 6 ic adaptors.

it's worth 30 just for the right adapters..
i would like to see the guts, and see if worth making, as it covers such a wide range of eeprom, microcontrollers etc, i will probably buy one in the end..
question is why would you make a flashing led with a microcontroller when u can buy one for 15p on the net..
knowledge is the question,and also upgrades in the future..

You could buy the TL866CS and update it to TL866A using a modified flashing upgrade tool.
I have the details on my works laptop, It works.

Do you need to add a ICSP header?

Yes, you need to add the header, I bought the A version, a friend has done the conversion to the A, after seeing details in another forum.

Saying that I would not use the TL866 to use as an everyday micro programmer, over the years I have collected from works stores many programmers.
in my workshop I have microchip devices ranging from pickit2 and pickit3, ICD2 & 3, plus a box of microchip dev boards.
same for Atmel devices, my work place invested in ATAVRISP2 and other kit, then went to J-Link, so if needed I can always borrow what I need.

I don't believe it took him all of 14 min's to open the bag for the TL866

Here is Dave's take on the TL866

Same to me. I have a collection of PICKit2/PICKit3/ICD3, Atmel JTAGICE3, JLink. The only useful function  of TL886 to me is to rescue messed-up AVRs.

Anyone know of a good forum for discussing this device programmer? I had questions on PICs and OSCCAL values.

And sonsivri is NOT  a forum?
no wonder you have made so little effort to post, except your "I want" posts.
your account value from 2005, is lower than that of a snake...

Only a heads up: original software updated again.
If you use the programmer software to Flash Update: a TL866CS that was hacked to TL866A, it will revert to a TL866CS

To Update a TL866CS/or/A hacked TL866A back to a TL866A you need to use TL866 - Hack
To convert update.dat to TL866A code for flashing.

Link has Hacking Tool & Update.dat

App Software Ver 6:16
Firmware Ver: 03.2.68
MODEL : TL866A
