    The touchpad is OK but what i really want to do is add a mouse to the Revue. Perhaps a USB dongle for IR/Bluetooth or 2.4ghz? Has anybody tried this as yet? I don't have any spare hardware to tryout as yet so any folks who have tried, succeeded or failed please post your thoughts. Thanks

    Hello,
    I connected the Microsoft Arc Mouse to my Sony Google TV and it worked perfectly. Didn't ask for any drivers, didn't take any settings, it just worked.

    I am going to try hooking up a logitech keyboard/mouse combo later today and will report back. It seems that the mouse and keyboard drivers are already set up in Google TV and my guess is that just about any one will work.

    I did not have luck with the logitech keyboard/mouse combo - the TV did not seem to recognize them at all. So, I am not sure which ones will and will not work. I am thinking about trying out the MS Arc Keyboard and am hopeful that will work since the Arc mouse works perfectly.

    I have an old wireless Microsoft Keyboard/Mouse that I pluged into the usb and they worked, but the mouse won't click on anything. The cool thing is that the home button works just like on the Sony GTV remote, is there anything I can do to get the mouse to click or do I have to just get a new mouse?

    I have a kensington wireless and it only works within three feet. It has the stock batteries. It would be nice to use a mouse from my easy chair from 12 ft. away. Any suggestions?

    My mouse works perfectly. It would be even bettter if they add support for it. If the use of the right key is enabled to bring up the menu I wouldn't have to use the Google remote to provide the "back" function.
