There are many around, i have a wireless small type connected.
Many websites have cheap ones from £10.00 or a USB from £5.00 local shops...

Actually a free MS(Microsoft) one that came with a PC - black model small keyboard.
There are much nicer ones, off course you could use all the short cuts too, just like the remote.
copy (to clipboard), cut, paste, esc, F10 (Menu),Enter/OK, arrows (highlight too)...

I've just done a few tests with my Cocktail X10 to work out what the special keys on an attached keyboard actually do. This is what I have found out so far:


Escape Previous
Home Home

F1 Info
F2 Mute
F3 Vol Down
F4 Vol Up

F5 Play/Pause
F6 Stop
F7 Record
F8 Now playing

F9 Search
F10 Menu
F11 Bookmark
F12 Radio

Shift F1Bookmarks
Shift F2 Favourites (Brings up list of existing Favourites)
Shift F11 Bookmarks

Useful keys when entering text. (Basically Windows-style shortcuts)

Cntl A Select All text
Cntl C Copy
Cntl X Cut
Cntl V Paste
Cntl Z Undo
Cntl Y Redo
End End of text
Home Start of Text

These are all the ones I have worked out so far, if anyone knows of more then please post your findings.

Derek

I know this is an older topic but thought there should be an addition.
The USB keyboard number keypad in numeric mode can be used to jump to the associated alpha in a song/artist/album/genre list just like on the remote control or phone pad. Just remember that the number keypad on the keyboard has 123 at the bottom, reverse of the remote control. The #2 key still cycles through abc, #8 through tuv.
