My RF Remote Controls for Smart TV

With the advent of the new Android based mini PC sticks - which plug into one of the TV:s HDMI ports - a series of RF remotes transmitting to a USB receiver has emerged. They all have mouse and navigation buttons (left/right/up/down/enter). They work with Windows and Linux as well as Android. Their reach is abt 5 - 10 m, and using RF means that they function through walls.

Here is a link to a general review of Remotes for Smart TV. I have bought these four RF (Radio Frequency) remotes:

On my PC I have two other RF devices (Logitec wireless mouse and Logitech wireless keyboard) using USB receivers. There has been some interference on the PC (in Windows or Linux), especially with the TSM-01 at boot time. I avoid using the mouse or keyboard while the remote's USB receiver is plugged in.

It was a bit tricky to manage the gesture control of cursor movements with Minix A2 and TSM-01, especially on the PC (Windows or Linux). This was disappointing as I saw this type of RF remote as a considerable improvement of my PC to TV Hook-up method for Smart TV.

Instead I bought a similar RF remote with touchpad control of the cursor rather than gesture control: the Measy RC12, which I prefered to use on the PC for some time.

But with TSM-G62C there has been some improvement in the gyroscope technology bringing excellent gesture control of the cursor, also to Windows and Linux. So TSM-G62C is now my preferred remote. I expect further advances to be made within a year.
