Need Wireless Keyboard for Samsung Smart TV UN46ES6100

by bmck88 / November 15, 2012 9:26 AM PST

Just bought a new Samsung UNES6100. Is there a wireless keyboard that will work with the browser in this TV. I checked the Samsung website and they list several 46 inch model that are compatible but not the UNES6100. I would like to hear from someone who has my model. Thanks , Jazzman

Hi bmck88,

It'll be compatible with most USB, HID-compliant keyboards from off the shelf of your local electronics store. Unfortunately, I can't get any more specific than that.

Try one of the logitech wireless keyboards first. (not that combo mouse/keyboard.)

Not sure what the answer is here, as you said "most USB, HID-compliant keyboards" works, but figured I'd ask (worst anyone can say is 'No' right Wink )

I have the same TV, have a wireless K/M combo (Logitech S520), plugged the receiver into the TV and went through the connector steps for the receiver and K/M.

Everything flashes the same way they do when I connect them to my laptop (so it 'seems' like they can see each other), then the lights stop (which they do if your not moving the mouse or using the KB), but when I go to use them in the browser on the TV, no lights, and no dice Confused .

I went to 'Devices' on the TV, and the keyboard and mouse entries both show 'none', so not sure, but thinking there's got to be some other step involved to get the TV to recognize the KB&M that's not explained here (or that my KB/M combo isn't compatible)

Would appreciate any help if you have it

Cheers

Thanks for the reply.

I knew this thread was old, but figured I'd give it a shot JIC.

I hear about the K400 a lot, so I take it this is the ONLY compatible Keyboard for these TV's (or ONLY a keyboard). Is there a mouse tho that can be used with it?

My bet is others work.

But as there are some hundred plus model TVs and more than that keyboards and mice then things come and go from production you find yourself mentioning the model that worked most of the time on most things that support the keyboard.

These TVs are not PCs.
