Hi,

 

I've got an Android TV box (Beelink Mini MX) and it's got bluetooth.

 

I can connect my mobile (Samsung Galaxy S5), but is it possible to use the phone as a keyboard?

 

If so...how? A certain app?

 

The TV box is connected via ethernet and not WiFi, so can't use Kore (Kodi remote control).

however I tend to install a VNC server on android and use VNC viewer on pc

 

and remote control android and it seens key strokes like your typing on it..

 

used it with smart watch zyxpac but only on ICS no luck with 4.4. or higher guess

 

they added more security to android

 

 

 

vnc viewer plus allows rotate and scale screen to size.. dont think its free though

OK, thanks.

 

I ended up buying a cheap one on Aliexpress ($13 or so with rechargeable battery).
