Hi,

I am also using UA40D6600(2011 model) ,i bought separate qwerty keyboard (remote control size).

Honestly i also prefer to have normal size qwerty wireless keyboard with a mouse-but need to know the compatability.

Also i need to know that Gtalk & facebook apps support voice over or only message chat /

any advise?

shanepwest,

Thanks for your message. But just so you know, if you want Samsung support, I support US products and customers. And from what I can tell, this model is for Australia. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) So while I can't help you directly, if you want Samsung help, here's the Samsung Australia portal for support on that product:
http://www.samsung.com/au/consumer/tv-audio-video/television/led-tv/UA40D6600WMXXY

But we got a nice little community here, and they might have a few other suggestions to help you out.

Hope this helps you!

Needing help with same issue in the states

So frustrated----Sears says Samsung has to solve the issue, Samsung says Sears has to solve the issue....I want a normal sized keyboard/mouse to use with my Smart TV - I have spent so much money and it is still useless.

The model is

SAM UN40D6300

Thanks but many individuals at Samsung told me it would never be possible to add a keyboard or mouse to the tv

Tried the QWERTY
by bearrudy / December 11, 2012 9:56 PM PST

...it is slow to respond, the keyboard is way behind on the TV, the remote keyboard "window" is black on grey, every time the batteries run out I have to resync it and this requires a call to Samsung

I am so thankful you have hopped in Bob....

I wanted a Smart TV that I could use a mouse and keyboard with and that is so NOT the case with this. I am going to try a Logictech that I saw mentioned somewhere else---more $$$$

I should have just bought a cheaper flat screen and hooked my laptop to it

Thanks again

Hi bearrud,

Unfortunately, the QWERTY would have been the only option for you on this TV. So you're right. I will say for 2012 TVs you can use most off-the-shelf keyboards (USB, HID compliant of course). Also, some Blu-ray players and Home theaters also have this functionality, if you're interested.

and thus my point....

I, an innocent consumer, spent a great deal of money at Sears buying a Samsung product that will never be able to do what I was told it would do....

No more Samsung or Sears for me....I would advise the same for others....

"every time the batteries run out I have to resync it and this requires a call to Samsung"

Ouch. I've yet to encounter such a thing. Is the call to get some code or to have them walk you through some procedure?

by bearrudy / December 12, 2012 10:26 PM PST

They walk me through the procedure since it NEVER works when I do it....

I have given up using the TV as I was told it could be used. I will hook my laptop to it and continue my ongoing boycott of Sears and Samsung.

Thanks so much for your help.
