I've been following this thread for a little while because, well, I really want one of those remotes.
I have something to add, though.

There is no mythical external dongle, and according to Dell parts there never was one due to the proprietary wireless usb communication protocol by Cypress.
First, that guy ripped you off. The dongle in the picture from his auction most definitely goes with the remote. I almost
won a different auction for pretty much the same package. I can't post the URL since I just signed up for this board, but the auction number was 290247414408. Check out the picture at the url in the description. That's the same dongle. I'm fairly sure that the package is the CX071 package that overtheringing got from Dell. Also, the guy that sold you the remote even responded to a question in the auction with "yes i has a usb dongle we it the other part is the infrared receiver." I'm just saying, if I were you, I'd be pissed. You should definitely take that up with paypal or something.
More importantly, though, there's a video review on youtube of the Gyration version of the remote from when it was still the R4000. Once again, can't post the url, but if you search for "gyration remote and keyboard" it should be the first video on there. At about 1:22, the guy holds up the usb dongle for the R4000/Air Music Remote, and it appears to be the same as the Dell dongle, minus the Dell branding of course. So, assuming that Gyration eventually releases their Air Music Remote, it may become much easier to get that dongle. If only...
