View Full Version : Connecting external mouse to an M8 TV box

18th August, 2015, 01:18 AM
I have recently bought a M8 Android TV box. As predicted the remote is a pain in the *** to use. I thought that I would be able to use my wireless keyboard and mouse that I sometimes use with my laptop. Nothing happened when I plugged in the wireless antenna for the keyboard and mouse into the USB port of the TV box. Is there any way to connect a USB external mouse and keyboard?

I used this wireless keyboard:http://bit.ly/1W3v10d It's a small size hand held keyboard+mouse combo. Works very well.

I had a similar problem , so I decided to buy a small wireless keyboard from amazon . You have to change setting on the tv box to accomodate the keyboard works fine now.

Hi, if you are using Kodi go to system > settings >system > input devices enable mouse. Hope this helps.
