  I decided to ask the folks at Gyration about this before tearing my
(and Jiri's) hair out, and it seems that the 3 "missing keys" are
actually not meant to send USB signals, only IR ones.  I tested it on
Windows using an usb bus tracer, and as expected (duh) nothing gets
through for them.

  Sorry about this, Jiri (although the "TV" and "Power" keys are still
broken :)!

  If I may, I'd like to add that their online support is pretty neat.
It might interest any potential buyers for this remote that they have
a partner that supposedly sells the same model with modified firmware
especially designed to work with Linux, at  I'm guessing
they fixed the bugginess Jiri described.
