I use my Dell Axim, but not as a bluetooth device. I connected via wifi and navigated to the web admin page of the lmce box.. Below the logon you can click to download orbiter software.

You might be in luck... what follows is based on the assumption that 'MCR Remote' is compatible with the remote you have;

Go to Web Admin and Wizard -> Devices -> Media Directors

No find the green 'Add Remote' button for your Core/Hybrid and click it. In the window that appears select 'Gyration' from the Manufacturer pop-up then click 'Apply Filter'. Now select 'MCR Remote' from the Device Template pop-up and the click the green 'Pick Device Template' button and then close the Window. That should have added an 'MCR Remote' to you Hybrid. Your Gyration usb IR receiver should get auto-detected I think.

Now do a reload router and test your remote in the Orbiter... it should be working. If not try rebooting the Core/Hybrid and trying the remote again.

Hope this helps... and saves you the effort  of adding a remote from scratch.

That didn't work... I think I may just take it back and order the Fiire Chief... Thanks

The standard Gyration remote is not one of the standard remotes that has a template in lmce. The Gyro mouse functionality will probably work but not the additional remote buttons. You'd have to add a template yourself.

Do you know what I would need to do to map the keys on the remote and create a template?

I also can't seem to play/pause the video from the gyro mouse. Nor can I do any of the options listed in the wiki:

"When media is playing, you can use the normal keys on the i/r remote to control the media playback and volume. Or press F6 or the 'media' button on the gyro remote, and then move left and right to adjust playback speed, or move up and down to skip through chapters/tracks/channels/songs depending on the type of media. With the left and right movement you have both absolute and relative. Absolute means keep the button held down while you move left and right. This is quite useful with the gyro remote. Press the left button, and if you move your hand all the way to the left you are at the beginning of your media, all the way to the right and you are at the end. Or, tap and release the button, then when you move left and right you are in relative, or jog shuttle mode. Move slowly to the right for slow motion forward, further to the right for 400x forward, back to the left to rewind, and so on."

I understand that the follow me feature is specific to the Fiire Chief, but I think my main question is did they do anything special to get the other buttons to work properly ( play, pause, jog, etc)?

    I just purchased the Gyration MCE remote and although it controlls the menus nicely, it does not function like the Fiire Chief when media is playing. I have seen similiar post regarding this and am wondering if anyone has found a solution for this remote or if I am better off purchasing the Fiire Chief. They are both the same price. I only purchased the Gyration remote because I could get it locally. Did Fiire incorporate specific changes to the remote that allow it to work with LMCE?
