LG Smart TV Keyboard App
Posted 01 June 2011 - 08:41 AM
So I'm looking for an app to install on my Android 2.2 tablet (Coby MID 8024) which can be used along with a wire connected USB keyboard to enter the on-screen text by wirelss. Over simplifying; I would type on the USB keyboard which would then send the commands by wireless to the TV keyboard display. This is currently being done on Samsung or Sony Smart TVs as well as some set top boxes. The TV itself is not compatible with a wired USB keyboard.
Your suggestions &/or ideas will be much appreciated.
Best regards, Richard

You can try virtual keyboard for Smart TV: http://www.softcorpo...on.com/smarttv/
This TV has a nice web browser capability but entering text for URL's or web searches is a real pain in the butt.
It was made for Samsung Smart TV, but should work with LG too. On Samsung TV it works with regular remote control and you can type, for example, "Lord of the Rings" in 4 clicks (besides moving cursor). The you just click button, for example "Youtube" to search for video.
I like that it allows entering text in other languages, like Spanish, Russian, etc. On Samsung I set it as a homepage for TV browser.
Note, if you try it using regular PC, you need to use mouse and it may not work properly in IE 7 browser, only 8 and 9, but Firefox and others should work fine.
