It depends on your TV...Like the article says...If you have a TV that supports a KB as an accessory, then the steps in the link are good. Few TV's do though...Last time I was shopping for TV's, the Sony, Philips, and the High end LG's have an optional KB, connected via a dedicated USB port on the TV, or using the wifi dongles that are also an option.
I'm not aware of any KB that will work with the ATV...Had a quick Google, but nothing there...just the little remote that comes with the ATV, which leads you to the onscreen KB...Others may know of a KB that will work, but offhand, I don't think there is one.Sorry, I don't really understand the answer. Why does it matter what the TV supports? I'm just after a remote with keyboard that only needs to work with the Apple TV, not a remote that can support multiple devices.
That's a Bluetooth KB....Can't see how that's going to work with an ATV unit
Really? I must try that out....so the OP just needs an Apple BT KB and he's good to go? I'm going to try this out....Don't really need a KB for my ATV's but would be interested to see how laggy it is.Because the ATV supports bluetooth keyboards. You pair them using the Bluetooth settings in the ATV settings menu.
Yes, BT keyboard will do me fine (didn't realize these were supported until after posting my question). Although I posed the question as an integrated remote with keyboard, I'm happy to have a separate keyboard and remote as long as the keyboard is pocket sized so it doesn't create much clutter.Really? I must try that out....so the OP just needs an Apple BT KB and he's good to go?
I experimented with a Bluetooth keyboard that I bought to use with an iPad, and the keyboard works just fine with ATV3. It's a huge improvement over the messy "keypad" that the ATV has by default.Really? I must try that out....so the OP just needs an Apple BT KB and he's good to go?
