If this keyboard was RF I would be getting one. I have a Gyration Ultra on my set up and I need RF because my equipment is off to the side of my couch.
At least the Gyration is the next best thing to having an integrated solution for couch surfing!

I am pretty frustrated with my Gyration combo, so looking forward to a guinei pig here to let us know how the range is in a real world setup.

I have a few questions:
Does this keyboard also work with a non-MC OS, e.g. XP? (as per MS website MC is required, but this does not necessarily mean it does not work with others as well)
Are those special keys freely programmable, e.g. assigning â€œCTRL Uâ€ to the fast forward key?
How is the keyboard connected to the PC? USB, PS/2
(Moved my general question about USB wake-up to a separate thread.)

On many motherboards you need to enable the "legacy USB" option in order to use a usb keyboard outside of the OS, which begs the question, if all you have is a USB keyboard, how do you get into the BIOS in the first place?
|My motherboard will do wake-on-mouse for USB mice, but it doesn't work with the Gyration because the USB transmitter/interface is powered by the USB, and power is off when the system is off or in standby. I now just leave the PC on all the time (now that I solved a fan problem).|

Well, most keyboards come with the a USB to PS/2 adapter. I have one from all my keyboards. ....
