    Hi

    The K 400 supports:

    Windows 7
    Windows XP
    Windows Vista

    In the Logitech forum there have been reports that the keyboard will work on some Smart TVs but the results sound hit or miss. Yer best bet would be to ask Sony support which USB keyboards are compatible.

    IMO you would be better off pairing a Logitech Revue keyboard to your Sony bluray. The K4000 is not designed specifically for GTV - and as such it won't have the dedicated GTV command keys.

    It's been reported that the Revue keyboard works pretty good with the Sony GTV devices - as far as I know some of the dedicated GTV command keys from the Logitech Revue keyboard will function with the Sony GTV devices. There was an excellent thread with a tutorial from "Eferz" (where is he by the way?). Here's the link:

    The Logitech Revue keyboard is currently offered on Amazon for $31. You will need a unifying receiver to pair it to your Sony GTV. The Logitech Revue K700 keyboard sold on Amazon comes with the unifying receiver included. If you want to use the same keyboard that came in the box with the Logitech Revue - then you will need to obtain a unifying receiver. Logitech sells the unifying receiver (I believe it's about $10) - or you can get one if you buy a Logitech mouse. They are also offered on Ebay.

    I use the Logitech Revue K700 keyboard with the Sony NSZ-GT1. I think any of the Logitech unifying receiver keyboards and mice will work to some extent with the first generation Google TV boxes but I wouldn't bother with anything other than the K700. I have the Logitech K350 and use it with a PC but I don't recall the K400 layout, whether it is closer to the K700 or K350. I also use the Logitech K700 with a laptop used for PlayOn/PlayLater and it works really well.

    I have purchased two Logitech Revue K700 keyboards and both came with the unifying receiver, so make sure it is included before purchase.

    Thanks for clarifying this Chris.

    In other words if someone has already purchased a Logitech Revue and wishes to pair THAT keyboard with a Sony GTV than you will need to obtain a Logitech unifying receiver.

    The Logitech Revue (optional) K700 keyboard (available on Amazon) comes with a unifying receiver included.
