^^ I read somewhere that the USB 2.0 standards have allowances for higher current then 1.1.

I asked before.. But please, if you have a unit which is deemed defective, please send it my way. I'm sure Motorola will attempt to blame the users... Whereas if I get a device for teardown, I may be able identify and isolate the problem then make it known which will basically force the manufacturer to correct and possibly recall the device if a hardware problem is to blame... Not that this is ideal, but even still, I'd like to help if I can.
I'm responsible for several on-board modifications on various mobile devices. I will publish results if I can find any as I have in the following threads:
Just saying... If you have a problem with a device, consider sending it my way for teardown. I will try to make sure we all learn from it.

i'll press a key (such as the arrow key scrolling through my movies, for instance) and nothing happens, then it does the key presses all at once. very annoying. any ideas why this does it? also how do switch to IR mode, because like everyone else i'm getting terrible range with it in RF mode. i mean, it might as well be in IR anyways, since the dongle has to be pointed directly at you for it to work in RF mode. i've switched back to my old (what i thought was a POS) MCE remote for now, and i gotta say, i appreciate it much more after using the nyxboard.

Hey mate. I'm still waiting on mine too. It was shipped on the 27th and the tracking number simply states that it is overseas (according to royal mail track & trace) is this also how you are tracking yours?
I'm in Perth so I am expecting it to take longer than usual

yeah just using the royal mail track and trace, which is unfortunately pointless for actually tracking or tracing
Im not home yet so I am still hopeful that it will be waiting for me either at my door or at the local post office, wanted to play this weekend. otherwise it looks like yet another week of waiting has gone by

Nope nothing at home, another weekend shall pass without the bloody remote

Try using the same code on Australia Post's website, it will be valid as it moves from one carrier to the next

any news on the range problem? on the left arrow problem?

How can I make xbmc use the keymap.xml file? I've placed it in ~/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/keymap.xml but it seems to be ignored. I'm using this mapping to try to get the colored- and the home button working correctly, without success so far....
I'm using the latest pre-eden build on ubuntu 11.04.

Nope, sorry, Australia post isnt that helpful unfortunately.........the site just comes up as "product not trackable".......which is better than not found I guess.

Step 1 is to check the log to make sure the keyboard.xml is being loaded and you don't have an error in the XML.
Step 2 is to press your required button the look at ~/.xbmc/.temp/xbmc.log to see what keypress XBMC is detecting - you need to enable debug logging to see the keypress logs.
Step 3, if you're still having problems, is to use entries like:
<somekey>Notification(Keypress, You pressed somekey, 2)</somekey>
to pop up a little message confirming that at least you got the key name right.
