I've been using Gyration remotes for my HTPC ever since 2007. The best thing ever. Especially the one that not only controls the PC, but also the TV, DVD Player, and Sat box. (GYR3101US).
I have the combo kit that came with the wireless compact keyboard and they have both been in regular use since 2007. I did have to get the remote replaced twice under warranty back when it had one due to the typical Gyro sensor going bad... (High pitched whine with uncontrollable pointer).
The one I have now has been in use since 2009. Unfortunately when Movea sold Gyration to SMK-link a couple years back, they only sold the "Air Mouse" and not the media remotes. Since then Movea has dropped all gyration support and SMK-link has nothing to do with the media remotes.
They are now completely unsupported by all companies.
All that being said, my current GYR3101US remote is finally beginning to act up.
The buttons are all well-worn from extensive use and some of them no longer respond well.
As a result, I've been pursuing a replacement. That's when I stumbled on this old thread.
As such, I lucked out and got the M2010 remote on ebay for $14.95, from the guy that usually sells them for $74.95... I think he made an error when he created the listing, because after I bought mine, he changed the price on his listing back to $74.95, but he honored my purchase price and I got the remote.
I then found the RH515, YY993 receiver for $27. I got it working (mostly) with Win 7 64 bit.. The playlist app doesn't like 64 bit, but everything else is going fine. I don't use the HTPC to play music without the TV on, so that feature really isn't required for me.
Now I have it as my back up remote. It is missing quite a few of the feature of my old GYR3101US. (Like the DVD menu button, which I use in WMC when I play DVDs from my hard drive).
When my current Gyration finally dies, I now have my go-to remote.
Thanks to all the early guys that documented everything within this thread and made it easy for me to get this remote up and running.
