Android, Android TV

Are you having trouble connecting your mini keyboard to your Android TV box? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to successfully connect your mini keyboard to your Android TV box.

Gather the Required Equipment

Before we begin, make sure you have the following:

  • A mini keyboard with a USB receiver
  • An Android TV box with an available USB port
  • A micro USB cable (if required)

Step 1: Power on Your Android TV Box

Connect your Android TV box to a power source and turn it on. Wait for it to boot up completely before proceeding to the next step.

Step 2: Insert the USB Receiver

Locate the USB receiver that came with your mini keyboard. It is usually a small dongle that looks like a USB flash drive. Insert the USB receiver into an available USB port on your Android TV box.


If your mini keyboard uses Bluetooth instead of a USB receiver, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for pairing it with your Android TV box.

Step 3: Establish Connection

Once you have inserted the USB receiver, wait for a few seconds. Your Android TV box should automatically detect and establish a connection with the mini keyboard.

If It Doesn’t Connect Automatically:

  1. Go to the settings menu on your Android TV box.
  2. Select “Remote & accessories” or similar (the exact label may vary depending on your device).
  3. Select “Add accessory” or “Pair new device”.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to pair your mini keyboard with your Android TV box.

Step 4: Test Your Mini Keyboard

Now that you have successfully connected your mini keyboard to your Android TV box, it’s time to test it out!

Open any app or navigate through the Android TV interface using your mini keyboard. Try typing, using the arrow keys, and any other function keys available on your mini keyboard.

If everything works as expected, congratulations! You can now enjoy the convenience of controlling your Android TV box with a mini keyboard.

If you are experiencing issues with your mini keyboard connection, try the following troubleshooting tips:

  • Make sure the batteries in your mini keyboard are charged.
  • Check if there are any obstructions between the USB receiver and the mini keyboard.
  • Restart both your Android TV box and mini keyboard.
  • If all else fails, consult the user manual or contact customer support for further assistance.
