Philips 4000 series Smart LED TV (47") Full HD 1080p DVB-T2/C with Pixel Plus HD

model number......47PFL4047T/12

I have just connected the tv to the internet but finding it a pain to use the remote and the screen as the key board.

Can I buy a wireless key board for the tv..if so any recommendations

A TV isn't a computer. So you can't just go chucking any old bits of hardware at a TV and expect it to recognise them and load appropriate drivers. A prime example is wireless dongles. There are loads to choose from for a computer. But TVs only support certain ones; normally the manufacturer's own version with a hefty price premium to boot.

The answer to your question is either in the manual - does it say it supports a keyboard? - or a Google search to see if other owners have tried the same and succeeded.

According to the manual it only supports USB keyboards. There is absolutely no mention anywhere of a wireless keyboard. If you plug the dongle for a wireless keyboard into the USB port I suspect that it would go the electronic equivalent of "WTF is this" and do sod all else.

If you have read the manual then you should have seen that it mentions you can plug a USB mouse into either one of the USB ports on the telly or into a USB port on the keyboard if it has one.
