wireless keyboards for 2012 smart tv UN40ES6100F

by gjsamuels / May 31, 2012 11:01 PM PDT

A few days ago I bought Samsung 40'' Class 1080p 120Hz Slim LED HDTV UN40ES6100. It connected readily to the wireless network at home and there is no problem connecting to the internet. But, the 'universal' remote provided with the set lacks a keyboard or any obvious way to enter text or (e.g. URL) or move an arrow. I cannot subscribe to HULU or Netflix or anything without some sort of keyboard or way to enter text and move an arrow.

Question: is there a way to make the provided remote enter text? Will any wireless keyboard wor or only the Samsung QWERTY remote? Can I plug in a keyboard through the USB drive?
