The Synchronization issue really bugs me, and often happens at when you least want it to happen. Battery issue is fine, got some rechargeable for it, but still there needs to be a better solution than this for Windows.
Do the original PS3 Bluray remotes also have the synchronization issues? I have the newer one.
I've tried both the original and the latter versions of the PS3 remotes (see my posts on the last couple of pages) and found the original remote to work far better with far less synchronisation issues.
When you say far less, does that mean it still happens? Does that hibernation feature in PS3BluMote actually work like its supposed to?
The second version of the remote unpairs quite often, not only when the batteries die. Using Windows and this thing does some crazy delay causing things as well. May try V1 if it can be confirmed to be reliable.

It basically "just works" (after a proper setup) in Linux and you can expect the batteries to last 1-2years. I can even wake my chromebox from sleep with the remote.
Can someone with a v2 remote confirm if they need to be repaired when changing battteries?
I never got it working reliably in Windows, although it must have been over 6 years ago that I messed around. The problem is basically that noone has got autosleep to work in Windows, so the batteries will only last a week at most. You shouldn't use this in Windows, it will only give you gray hairs.
I use Windows. Experiencing the non reliable problem myself. V2 just loves de-syncing whenever it feels like it. Its a pain to use.
