Keyboard/mouse available for Net TV?
Just bought my first Net TV. Looks rather good, however the free internet navigation is rather lousy. Does Philips offer a remote keyboard/mouse for this thingy ( e.g. http://www.amazon.com/Ione-Scorpius-.../dp/B000VK54DM)? Or can I maybe buy a standard USB keyboard and attach it?
No it is not possible to connect a keyboard to your tv. I tried it and it will not work. BTW this is also mentioned in the FAQ.
With kind regards, Gertje.
The Forum FAQ? Or do you mean on the product page on this Philips website?

I have read it on the Philips product support website. It is mentioned in one of the FAQs listed with a NetTV set, for instance in this list.
Wireless keyboard & net tv
Is it possible to connect a wirelless keyboard to your tv to browse in NET TV with? I like the idea of browsing the web on my tv screen. I would always like to connect a keyboard for this though..
Anyone has experience with this (wired / wireless?)
Question was already raised. See earlier posts.

I think that many users, like me, would like to have a remote with a small keyboard or they would like to plug-in a wireless usb keyboard. This would make internet and apps more usefull.
Also, it would be nice if Philips removes the display of the characters on password fields, it's a password field not a text field.

Perhaps someone can make an iPhone application for a remote keyboard for Net TV. Something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xk4t6SZUlLw
Ey Johnny: maybe this can be done via a jointSPACE app. Take a look here. Who will take up the challenge????

I would like to play the movies (public as wildlife africa on itunes) on the TV, Juan do you have experience with the jointspace? Does Philips allow within waranties that I download and install these software?
Is it possible to create a backup of the original config, to crate a fallback scenario in case it fails? How to reconfigure to the original one?

So, there is no need for backups etc.
revolutionary new technology for remote controls?
There might not be a remote keyboard today for Net TV but there are interesting developments going on. Philips has found partners Oregan Networks and Broadcom and they seem to work on a revolutionary new technology for remote controls. Read this and this article.

The latest Hi Tech remotes from Philips are called "Prestigo" but they are not contributing much to the use on Net TV. See SRT8215/10 and SRU6008/10 But Broadcom makes this! That is usefull for Net TV if they align with PHILIPS!

That way it would be possible to send discrete ascii characters with a pronto or other remote.
Right now it uses 0-9 symbols to make sms style ascii possible.
@Philips, I searched already but are there more info's on discrete ascii chars (maybe someone who gets a Dual Philips remot control can learn a pronto and post ccf file ) in rc5/rc6?
