If you have an Android phone or a tablet, check out the Media Remote app. I'm using it on my Nexus 7 and my Samsung Galaxy and it works beautifully. After getting it set up you just need to make sure you get to where the keyboard is showing on the TV screen; i.e. the place where you have been using the remote to enter text. (If you stop at the screen where the Search field is showing it will just return a message about not accepting text. The app is sooooooo much better than entering with the remote.
