Default Linking BT keyboards

I have an old Logitech PlayStation 3 Cordless MediaBoard Pro. Now that we have root, is there anyway to get this thing to pair with the Fire TV? Any BT related files anything of that nature...
Thanks in advance!

Thought bluetooth keyboards worked out of the box on the Fire TV?

I have been trying to link this one, I cannot get it to work. I would like this one for the simple fact that it has a mouse pad built in. however, I have two more which came with USB dongles, those two work.

Default Motorolla KZ500

Do most bluetooth keyboards work out of the box on the Fire TV?

I have the Motorolla KZ500, with a combo slide-out touchpad. It is connecting to the Fire TV using the sideloaded settings.apk, but it does not do anything.

any ideas or suggestions?

Has anyone successfully used their phone as a BT keyboard? I know there are apps for this in the play store but I cannot get the phone (nexus 5) or the firetv to see each other.
