    There are currently no special GTV bluetooth keyboards available. By that I mean a bluetooth keyboard with the special dedicated GTV command keys. So currently all you can do would be to use a "regular" generic bluetooth keyboard with the Co-Star.

    Sorry I have no personal recommendations at this time as I don't own the Co-Star.

    If you have a Logitech Revue Keyboard (model K700) – give this a try.

    good luck :)

    We are still waiting for a good Bluetooth keyboard for this generation of Google TV devices, I don't think any made for tablet or PC keyboards will be an acceptable alternative and I have never noticed anybody claiming good results. Surely some company will make a good one at some point.

    Just to be clear about something - the Logitech K700 keyboard is not a bluetooth keyboard. You will need the Logitech unifying receiver to pair it to a GTV device.

    Others have reported that the K700 keyboard works good with Sony GTV devices - although I recall reading that the on-off button doesn't work.

    According to Logitech - the K700 is supposed to work with "Google TV ready televisions". I haven't read of anyone trying it with the Co-Star yet - although somebody posted that they paired a Logitech Revue mini-controller to the Co-Star and some of the GTV dedicated command keys (such as the back key and several others) didn't work. I would tend to think that the Logitech Revue mini-controller would perform more or less the same as the K700 when paired to the Co-Star:
