No support for usb wireless keyboard, samsung 6100 series

Thank you for your reply. From what I have learned, the tv appliance is not a computer and does not support usb add-on devices: keyboards, printers, etc. My owners manual only has 40 pages, odd that you saw over 200 pages. Thanks again.

And probably is longer than what is packed with the TV.

Hi flournoy2,

Actually, you should be able to use a USB, HID-compliment keyboard just fine. It's a feature add to the 2012 models. (Model codes will look like: UN**E******)
