    Help Anyone tried a cheap Bluetooth keyboard with a Samsung smart TV

    Rather than pay around £60 for a Samsung dedicated keyboard I was wondering if anyone else has managed to successfully use a cheap HID compatible Bluetooth keyboard with a modern Samsung TV which has built in Bluetooth. Was going to try a USB keyboard but why tie up one of the USB ports when the Bluetooth option is not going to be used for anything else.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] I was thinking of getting.

    In theory any HID compatible device should work but things are not that simple in the real world. (">

    I was seeing a girl who had a smart sammy 60".
    She controlled hers off her ipad via a samsung app.
    Seemed to respond well, but the mouse function was shit.
    So I happened to have a micro keyboard with me - bluetooth.
    It recognised it as a device, but didn't let it control anything - seemed to want drivers.
    I even plugged my dongle into one of the usb's but again, it wanted drivers.
    On my PC however the micro keyboard was just plug and play.

    Thanks to I Black Belt

    Yep I use the iPad here and it works very well. Plus acts as a second portable screen (for Freesat or Freeview).
    We all make mistakes sometimes

    Thanks for the advice. Ordered the keyboard anyway. For £13 I will give it a go. The reviews are very good so may come in handy for other devices. From looking around there is also an Android app that I could use. Got a Motorolla Defy Mini that I can't get used to as a phone (I like my Blackberry) so I could use that I suppose. Don't like virtual keyboards though. (">

    EDIT: Was writing my reply when you posted this. Will swap mine with Amazon if the one I ordered doesn't work.

    theres loads of these types of keyboards all as good as each other and come with their own Bluetooth receiver so just got to have a usb slot on tv, I preferred the proper trackpad rather than the mouse stick on yours.

    Also mine is remote control sort of size, your looks a bit of a beast but depends on how big your thumbs are ;-)

    I don't know. you tell me. All I know is I can use my Blackberry bold 9700 keyboard no problem and my GF doesn't complain that its too small or too big when I shove it up her arse. And yes it is terrible that I bite my nails (but its more comfortable for my GF that way). (">
