    Logitech Keyboard Controller for Logitech Revue and Google TV (model #920-003039) (AKA: K700)

    I got the wireless keyboard to work with the LG "G2" TV and most functions worked like they should EXCEPT:

    The unit would turn OFF the tv.... but would NOT turn it back ON !

    * You have to turn the keyboard on and off by a toggle button on the back.... I knew I forget and leave this thing on all the time and drain the batteries. OR does it sleep and wake up on it's own??????
    * You tap to click on the trackpad by enabling it by keying in Ctrl + FN + Pg/Ch + keys....... The problem is when you turn the keyboard off... It reverts back
    * Logitech no longer supports the device..... so no new software for it

    Summery, It is a nice sized keyboard and is comfortable to use.

    Probably going to send it back only because of it not turning ON my TV.... and the simple fact that I have to turn the keyboard On and Off via a toggle button vs it sleeping and waking up on it's own?

    The keyboard isn't draining much power if you don't turn it off, unless you give it to a baby to punch buttons while not in use, I always leave mine on. As far as turning the TV on, I don't know if that is possible but it would require the TV be in some sort of standby mode accepting the RF to USB receiver signal powering it on. If the previous Sony HDTVs with Google TV could be powered on by the Logitech Revue RF keyboard, it may be the LG models can as well. With the Revue, the box itself accepts the RF signal and outputs IR to power the TV on. So I don't know the answer but the solution might be in a setting somewhere with the TV options if there is a solution.

    Thank You ChrisG8...... That explains the TV ON problem.

    Question about the battery life on the keyboard...... about how long should I expect a fresh set of duracell's to last if I leave the keyboard on? Or does it really not use any power unless you depress a key?

    I have had a Revue for a year and have not replaced the batteries yet. Battery drain if left on can't be much if the keyboard isn't used, it may be it would use more juice just turning it on and off then if you left it on. I say leave it on.

    I really like this keyboard..... VS the one that came with the LG G2 TV

    I am seeing these keyboards on ebay for about $25 shipped...... Look for Logitech K700

    Logitech is no longer making this keyboard.... and they are being cleared out right now....

    There is a way to send an IR TV power on signal from the K700 keyboard? I power on my display using the keyboard, K700>RF>Revue STB>IR Power On but I have never sent an IR command from the keyboard directly. I would think Logitech would include that but I haven't needed it and never seen that disclosed.

    The ability to change key functions on the Revue Keyboard is built into the Revue so you need that device to program that particular keyboard.

    All Apps: Settings > Input Devices > Customize Controller Keys etc!

    skypros, did you need the unifying USB receiver to get the Logitech keyboard to work with the LG TV?

    the G2 does already work with some wireless keyboards already. its kinda a trial and error deal. sound off if you have gotten a wireless mouse/keyboard to work...

    also most wired USB mice and keyboards work... just get a usb extender...not a major hassle
