BTW, I'm currently using the C120 mini wireless remote with airmouse and qwerty keyboard as a replacement (actually in addition to the Nyxboard). There are a few different models with slightly different key setups, mine looks like this: http://m.geekbuying.com/item/C120-2-4GHz...41499.html
(except that it's black and not yellow).
- best Chinese airmouse/keyboard I've seen, in build quality and features
- airmouse is off by default, easy to turn on or off with a dedicated button, turns out after a timeout and gets temporarily disabled when you flip to the keyboard side (although locating a search box then flipping the remote without moving the cursor in the process requires some delicate acrobatics, do Netflix search is still a problem). All in all, the best airmouse implementation I've seen so far.
- no on-off switch, it's always on, and rather good battery life, I charge it every two weeks or so, and it takes a standard microusb charger like I have in the living room anyway for my phone.
- keys in the keyboard side are hard, so even if they aren't actually disabled when on the down side, you can't click them accidentally.
- the "media side" had useful home, menu, back and volume buttons in addition to the d-pad.
- the "media side" has no media controls. I've learned to locate the space button by feel, so I can pause/play without turning the remote, but everything else requires going back to the keyboard side as remembering shortcuts.
- the keyboard layout is not really qwerty - it's kind of weird with O and P tucked in the fifth row near the space button.
- you can't type uppercase letters as the SHIFT button is used to trigger secondary characters on the letter keys, so you can't do"jump to by letter" on Kodi. There's other weirdness in the keyboard side, like - there's an END key, but no HOME...
- if you sit more than 2 meters from the screen, sometimes the receiver doesn't register the keyboard events - I have to point the remote at the screen while pressing the letter to get it registered, suggesting a bad antenna setup.
- weirdly, the "back" key on the media side is not backspace - I think it's an ESC, so if you use the media side to navigate the library, pressing back will work like the home button, and to go "up folder" you'd need to flip to the keyboard side and use the backspace there. The keyboard side has arrow keys, but they are hidden as SHIFT actions on letter keys, and because the keyboard side keys are so stiff, it's very uncomfortable to use a lot of SHIFT sequences.
- there's is no IR functionality - that I could find. When inspecting the device, it's easy to see it has an IR LED at the front, but I found no way to activate any IR features. Very weird.
Summary: it's a useful remote, even if as a secondary device to a real keyboard or a Nyxboard. I'm mostly using it as a better way to handle Netflix (and other mouse oriented apps) that I launch from Kodi - it's airmouse is much easier than the Nyxboard mouse support and it's often better than reaching for the full size mouse.
