How To Pair A Microsoft Wedge Keyboard With The Apple TV

Share This:


As a new owner of an Apple TV, I saw the Bluetooth option where you can add a keyboard to be able to type searches and information. I had a previously owned bluetooth Microsoft Wedge Keyboard, but when I went to pair the keyboard, it wouldn’t pair. It would find the keyboard, but it would never pair.

Luckily, I found out how to pair a Microsoft Wedge Keyboard with the Apple TV.

The Microsoft Wedge Keyboard uses a bluetooth pairing technology called SSP, which is why it is unable to pair with the Apple TV.

If you turn on the keyboard, then hold the FN button while you press the bluetooth button, this will disable SSP in pairing mode. Now go to the Bluetooth menu on your Apple TV and successfully pair it with your Microsoft Wedge Keyboard.
