Remote Controls for Smart TV:s

Remote Control for full size Smart TVs: There has been a lot of progress lately in input methods, especially for quick navigation, using wii type pointers and touchpads. To enter text in search boxes Smart TV:s mainly rely on a virtual keyboards on the TV screen using arrow keys or touchpads - only Philips has a full Querty keyboard. Texting with voice input shows considerable promise. Sony uses keyboard and voice control in its Google TV.

Smartphone apps can also assist with quick web site navigation and entering text in search boxes, such as: Advanced Touchpad, Remote Trackpad and Instant Remote. I prefer the latter one as it also works with Linux. They all use WiFi.

RF Remote Controls: With the advent of the new Android based mini PC sticks - which plug into one of the TV:s HDMI ports - a series of RF remotes has emerged, all transmitting to a USB receiver. They have left and right mouse buttons and navigation buttons (left/right/up/down/enter). They work with Windows and Linux as well as Android.

Remotes with Gesture Control of Cursor:
All the remotes below have gesture control of the cursor movements and querty keyboard. All but the TSM-01 have voice control and multi-media controls. The cursor control can be a bit tricky in Windows and Linux though, but can be mastered with some practice?
