Wireless keyboard

Is anyone using a wireless keyboard with their Virgin STB?  I just got a 360 and thinking it might be useful.

Re: Wireless keyboard

Hello

I am afraid that you cannot use a keyboard with the v360 it will only pair up with the remote that is supplied. The USB socket on the back only supplies voltage there is no data signal so you cannot place a dongle in the back.

Useful to know and probably not something worth adding to a wishlist either.

Re: Wireless keyboard

Ok, I'll bite...why?  

I honestly cant think of a single scenario where a keyboard would be useful given 360 has voice control

Re: Wireless keyboard

Well, for example, in the YouTube app or BBC I player, you still need to use the onscreen keyboard to search. Unless I missed something?

What about a customer with a speech impediment, or a customer that doesn't have the capacity to speak?

Re: Wireless keyboard

The TV Go app allows you to search for content using a compatible mobile device but then play it back via the Virgin TV box.

This also applies for apps such as YouTube and Netflix with their 'cast' options.

For other services like iPlayer or Prime Video, they have a playlist that can be set on one device and accessed via the apps on the box.
