I tried a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse combo EX 100, no luck. I read to try a Microsoft 2.4 GHz, but I found a Logitech Solar 2.4 GHz K750, no mouse but the keyboard works Great! It has the small usb key to commniate with the TV, and it will use any Logitech mouse with unifying technology. Don't really need a mouse, but it sure beats typing on the remote keypad..
The Logitech Wireless Illuminated Keyboard K800 is compatible with my Panasonic TC-P50ST50. Both Logitech and Panasonic couldn't recommend or provide a list of compatible keyboards, so I blindly purchased this keyboard. If it didn't work, I had planned beforehand to use it on my desktop computer. On my Panasonic TC-P50ST50, I plugged the wireless receiver into one of the USB ports and after I turned on the TV, it prompted me to select the keyboard type (U.S., Canadian, Spanish). Although it does sluggishly respond to inputs on my TV, I attribute that to the slower processor of the Panasonic ST50 series, which is not the dual-core processor of the Panasonic GT50 series. Therefore, any keyboard would respond sluggishly...but tolerably. I like the keyboard so much, I eventually moved it to my desktop computer and if I want to use it on my TV, I just plug the receiver into the TV. If you would also use this keyboard on both your TV and computer and don't want to constantly fumble with the USB connection on the rear of your TV, this keyboard comes with a receiver extender cable. Plug the extender cable into your TV, leave it there and plug the receiver into the extender cable when you move it.
On Wednesday, I ordered through Amazon for $79.99 and with the free shipping option, it arrived the following Friday. 1 day, 20 hours and 56 minutes! It's easy to set up, delightful to use and convenient as a multipurpose keyboard.
Logitech wireless MK260 keyboard does connect with Viera as the arrow directional keys work, but actual typing of Letters & numbers does not work. So, back in the box and a return, and my hunt continues to find a better alternative to Searching YouTube or other apps via typing on a qwerty, rather than the frustrating remote wand.
[UPDATE/CLARIFICATION] I continued toying with the keyboard and SEARCHES on various 'Net services (Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter) to discover this keyboard does work with the TV. Instead, it is often the extremely kludgey applications that require precise handling. Folks, I've played for this TV for 6 months, and while I love the TV itself, the Viera application suite does not really produce the same feel of "being on the 'Net" or "surfing the Web" that your computer will. While on my PC web browser, I start at Google or Yahoo or whatever homepage and surf from there, the Viera apps are limited to what I'd call push entertainment vehicles. Netflix, HuluPlus, etc. I do enjoy posting up family pics on Google's Picassa, or videos on Vimeo ... and viewing them on the large Viera screen in the living room. This aspect of Panasonic Viera is brilliant. However, using the TV as a typical web browser? Forget it. Even though Facebook & Twitter are provided apps on Viera, they are really not very useful. You can't call a link from within either app, for instance. You can post a Tweet, but it is annoyingly difficult and cumbersome to find the right menu and command sequence to do so, even with a wireless keyboard. Until and unless Panasonic gets serious about promoting solid Web applications for its Viera platform, do not expect their TVs to provide a true web-surfing environment. Buy the TV for its fine picture, and its many HDMI and USB hookups, but not as replacement PC or iMac for your den.
I just got my Panasonic st60 tv and had same question. I bought the Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 with Built-In Multi-Touch Touchpad (920-003070) for $29 and the keyboard and arrow keys work okay ( a little sluggish but acceptable). But as others have said, the touchpad/mouse feature does NOT work. My question to the thread posters, is there ANY wireless keyboard where both the keys and touchpad (or tracking ball) will work? FAVI tiny handheld keyboards? IOGEAR keyboards? Microsoft?
Xenta make small wireless keyboards that work on some Panasonic TVs. Price from £8-£20. Mine did the keying OK, but kept crashing the TV when I hit enter. The helpful guys at the AV shop tested it on their Panasonic TVs and it worked fine (that's what they they sell the Xenta it for).
Just got my Panasonic 60ST60 last weekend. Working to get some basic picture quality adjustment and started to wonder how long is that Menu button on the remote going to last. Different inputs; HD sports, TNT, Moviecity, etc.. all require tweaking of contrast or tint. Have new Logitech MK270 USB keyboard... plugged in tiny receiver and instantly was working... F3 key = Menu, arrow keys function. Does anyone know where to find a complete map of what keys correspond to the Remote commands? The manual lists a very limited number. But overall works great and only $27!!
Hi guys, I got the Panasonic 55ST60 plasma and a Logitech K810 BT keyboard. I took it for granted that the TV has Bluetooth but it does not. Could anyone provide specific details of the USB-Bluetooth dongle which works with a generic BT keyboard? The K810 requires some authentication during pairing because it works with 3 devices. I figured that if I paired it with a BT dongle on a computer, then it could work. Unfortunately, the BT dongle I have laying around does not seem to work - could be defective, or could be that the keyboard just fails to pair with a dongle. Any suggestions? Also, I could not find any VIERA HID keyboards, which is what should work with the ST60 - those are plugged into the USB?
I tried with a Microsoft with USB2 cable and it works fine, even the multimedia volume and the arrows as the mouse Later with a generic RF keyboard Slim Touch Mini with keypad and the keyboard and not the multimedia, I'll try later 2 o 3 more including Adesso and Logitech with Bloetooth
I've bought a couple of keyboards to use with a Panasonc St-50. One controlled volume but little else. The other did diddily. But there are apps you can use on an Android tablet or smartphone--may be some for iPhone, too. The app works well for me with my TV connected to may wireless network. I can even more the cursor with mouse-like gestures on the tablet or phone. And the app emulates visually the keys on the Panasonic's own remote, so that I have the Netflicks button and the four color buttons that serve different functions. No having to remap keys to codes. Oh, and the apps are free.
