A wireless keyboard that connects to a device via an USB dongle would work on my TV (Samsung 43RU7100)

Go to solution Solved by Kilrah,

Anything should work, wireless keyboards usually act just like if they were wired, the device doesn't even know they're wireless.

Hello everyone. I don't know if its better to ask it here or on the peripherals section, but I figured that here would be better. Here's the deal: I own a Samsung 43RU7100 TV. I plan on watching some anime at Crunchyroll, but they don't have an app for smart TVs, meaning that I would need to use it in my TV browser. The issue is that typing anything on the remote is a pain (I was able to ignore this in other apps like Netflix and Amazon prime because there's a quicktyping-like feature on them, which is non-existant on the browser). So my solution is to use a keyboard. I had a bluetooth keyboard from Logitech lying around here, but I just found out that my TV does not support bluetooth keyboard, only wired ones. Since using a wired keyboard is a no go to me (the distance between the TV and my bed is too long), I was thinking of getting one of those cheap wireless keyboards that connects to the device via an USB dongle. But I don't want to buy something just to have it not to work, so I want to be at least somewhat sure that it would work. Does anyone that owns this TV knows if this would be feasible? Or someone who knows a little more on the matter at least would be able to tell me if for the device (TV, PC etc.) one of these wireless keyboards would be considered a wired device (so circumventing the "only works with wired keyboards" issue that my TV has). Thanks in advance!

id recommend just go wired 

As I said in the post, it's impossible, unless I find a wired keyboard with a 2m long cable and accept the fact that there's going to be a huge cable going through my room, or stand up every time I decide to type anything

Do you think those cheap ones that are windows certified would work?
