For somebody who already has the remote, I'll glady sell my accessories (IR receiver, IR blaster and the elusive RF USB receiver). Just PM me.

UPDATE: Nevermind! I decided to just buy a WJ151 remote off of eBay for $25. Easier solution.
Okay, so I get my replacement remote from ebay. Seems in new condition, as advertised. However, upon inserting a fresh set of duracell batteries, there is moment when the firmware is displayed, then it attempts to connect with computer. I don't have the software installed, but this is okay, as I don't use the LCD. However, whenever I try and use the remote, it's as though it's stuck in gyro mode. The led above the stop button (in line with the TV/PC/TV Input/Connect buttons) stays lit. It is trying to select stuff all the time. As a result, the remote is useless and I'm sure draining batteries very quickly. Any ideas what is going on? Is there a way to reset it? I tried it on two different USB RF dongles, as it act the same way. My original remote works fine with both Dell RF dongles. Did I get a lemon off of ebay?
