I finally got an apple TV and bought atv. I understand that you can use a keyboard with the apple tv which would be great when surfing the web or searching for specific albums.

wondering if anyone has any recommendations.

I'm looking at
logitech diNovo (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0011FOOI2/ref=s9_simh_gw_p23_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-3&pf_rd_r=0HPKDE1EA41N5PKWRG95&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938811&pf_rd_i=507846)

or Adesso Mini White PS/2 Keyboard with Glidepoint Touchpad (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00008XOKH/ref=s9_simh_gw_p23_i6?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-3&pf_rd_r=090CX2AP3FGGBPWCVV71&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938811&pf_rd_i=507846)

open to other suggestions.

Thanks

I have the dinovo that I use with a Mac mini for home theater. I really like it but the touch pad leave alot to be desired. I'm currently trying to figure out a way to control more tv and receiver functions with the keyboard. I'm not really a computer guy so it's pretty slow going for me.

thanks for your reply and the touch pad info is helpful but I'm looking specifically at the :apple:tv. I want to do a little web browsing from time to time using the :apple:tv. Also we have a pretty big music library and some times it would be helpful to search for artists or albums.

Anyone else have any suggestions?

If you TV has a video in port for PC's - go to your Displays preference panel and click on arrangement. Pull your internet browser window to the secondary monitor and click on inputs for your TV to that input. Now you can use your Mac Keyboard and mouse with or without a cord (bluetooth) and it works great!
