I find that very strange since the Dell remote has been out since 2006.
I think they have a deal with Dell that has stopped them from releasing a retail version until an undisclosed date.
In any case, the Dell remote is great.
I no longer have to have a mouse around for my HTPC.
Now I need to figure out what to do with my Gyration mouse.
I agree. I have kept an eye on various spins on this remote for a few years. It is certain, the agreement between Dell and Gyration has kept the Ultra Gyration R4000 LCD flavor from realizing a retail release. There have been a few reviews and projected release dates, but as you said, nowhere to be found.
CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE: ULTRA GYRATION R4000: (...Please post if you have found availability)
CURRENTLY AVAILABLE: Gyration Motion Sensing Remote Control Certified for Microsoft Vista (Item Number: G128-1044)
Also, I have yet to obtain, but very interested in digging into the Gyration software. I do have a copy of the Gyration manual & codes, which may help. If you can provide details on your hardware, I will compare the Dell codes to the Gyration manual and possibly come up with something that works for you.
Also, take a look at linux version www.Fiire.com
