Notably, some keyboard comes with built-in touchpads. So, you can even use it as a mouse and keyword with one device. If you want to buy 2-in-1 keyboards, here are our recommendations.
Note: Using a Logitech keyboard, you can also connect the Samsung TV to WiFi without a remote.
Connect Android TV to Internet using Ethernet Cable
Using an Ethernet cable, you can connect your Android TV to the internet without a remote. It is recommended to use the DbillionDa Cat 8 Ethernet cable, which delivers high-speed bandwidth and is suitable for all Android TV models.

Use a Universal Remote
If the original remote is lost or completely damaged, you can buy a new replacement remote. If you feel that the original remote is priced higher, you can buy a universal remote for a reasonable price. There are some pre-programmed remotes that don’t require programming as they work with Infrared technology. But, you should buy 2 AA batteries for the remote at extra cost.
