I have this Gyration remote which, out of the box, does not support triple-tap for text entry outside of Media Center; only numbers can be entered in the Windows shell. Gyration have a patch that supposedly allows this, but it hasn't worked for me.

I'm not alone in this regard it seems though. I've seem some discussion on removing and reinstalling USB devices to get this working, but nothing I'd really trust not to screw something else up.

Does anyone have any tips for getting this functionality working properly?

Trust me i have been on every message board and support site and there is sure fire way to get this functioanlity

Many claim to have this functionality working fine though. I can't imagine they're all Gyration shills :) – Lunatik Nov 13 '09 at 16:08

I don't have an answer, but that link you posted to the patch is actually specifically for triple tap inside of media center.
