i have a samsung box that makes my tv a smart tv. my question is, will this mini controller contoll the samsung box? if so, usb? Jun 12, 2014
Im not 100% because I havent tested with that exact setup, but my guess would be that it would work. It works with many video players I have worked with, including software based video players.

Planning to get this for my HTPC. Anyone using this with Windows 7 Media Center ? Gripes or recommendations ? Jan 20, 2014
My whole family has been incredibly happy with it for controlling our HTPC. Which we use a lot. Functions near perfect, and amazing battery life. My only complaint is that the USB dongle seems a little... weak. We are set up on a small 32" TV, so our couch is fairly close, and sometimes we STILL have to lean forward on the couch to get it to communicate consistently. And I had to put the dongle on a USB port on the front of the case, because it was even more horrible when I had it hidden around back! But other than that, it's a wonderful little HTPC remote.
This remote keypad has nothing to do with the Chromecast device. The keypad is associated with a computer it will "run". The Chromcast device just displays on your tv whatever your computer is displaying. If the keyboard works with your computer/laptop, then you are fine. If you are wondering if you can work a Chromecast device without a computer by using this keyboard... nope
Anyone having any luck using this with a Samsung UN32H5500AF? or that class of Samsung Smart TVs? Jan 24, 2015
No. In fact the Samsaug repairman is due Monday at 10:30 AM how is that for irony?
The key layout is on a grid, not standard issue (staggered-bricks). So is it comfortable for a "Writing-My-Novel" kind of typing? Or Carpal-Tunnel? Dec 20, 2014
it's 5 inches wide, about the size of a Samsung Galaxy S5, so you'll have to make up your own mind on that question. I have carpal tunnel and I like it
No, this is just a keyboard. Unless of course you connect it directly to your HTPC, then you don't need a computer.
