I would like an alternative to my Shield remote that also allows Voice Search which has a Keyboard built in. Are there any?
I have this remote and voice search works:
Azulle A-1068-AL Lynk Multifunctional Remote Control, Backlit QWERTY, Air Mouse, AI Learn Buttons, Black
Yes, the select button works in the Amazon video app. The device connects via USB, so it's not IR or line of sight dependent. I use the remote in my bedroom which is really small (about 10ft in length) and it works fine in that range.
The back button doesn't activate the air mouse. The mouse has a dedicated key for activating.
I am currently using this.
Best remote i have ever used been using now for over 3 weeks. i did have to remap tha back button as it was a bit strange how it was working and i remaped the search button to bring up the assistant. But voice works perfectly just hold down the mic button to switch the mic on and tallk. i have alos remaped the coloured buttons to shorcuts to my most used apps. It also has IR learning and works with my tv and sound bar.
How funny that's the exact same remote I got about a week ago and I'm loving it too. Didn't have any back button issues. You using a gen 1 16gb shield tv? Great idea on the remap of the search button. I will do this. Like you, I also made a button to my soundbar and tv. What a coincidence LOL. I like this remote so much that I'd be willing to pay double if they added more programmable buttons. With the IR learning, I'd program it on my ceiling fans, window ac units, and so on, if it had more buttons.
