It's been a year since I installed my new 37-inch LCD, turned my main computer into a full-fledged HTPC, and I acquired the MX3200 combo (keyboard + mouse)... It worked perfectly until a couple of months ago...
Nothing has changed - the same hardware, same software, same operating distance... and yet the keyboard is almost unusable in Firefox! Out of the blue, I experience terrible delays when typing - or worse, only a couple of keys will be working, so a text will look like gibberish.
It is extremely frustrating to have to type in things like e-mail passwords several times, character by character, just to make sure that the all the letters are there, when all you see is asterisks!
Similarly, the mouse stops scrolling at random, or won't respond to clicking a link unless I start to press the button furiously and repeatedly, for several seconds.
I've seen this mostly in Firefox - it doesn't happen with IE, but then again, I don't want to use that bloated piece of software! I *think* I've had it happen a couple of times with other applications, including Quake 3 as well, but I think those were statistically insignificant.
I tried changing the USB receiver from one port to another, connected it directly to a front port (without extension cord), I tried upgrading Firefox, I installed the latest Logitech firmware... nothing!
I can't think of any reason this phenomenon would just start happening like it did... I cannot trace it to any software update or change, either.

Sadly, I can't see what fixes they suggested...

I've got the same issue with my mouse. within the last couple of days, the mouse wont click or scroll but the pointer moves around.
