I'm not familiar with the Logitech K400, but I would have thought that it should work. I bought a VisionTek CandyBoard
for use with my TiVo HD (or my Premiere), and it worked fine. If it works, it has to be plug-and-play since there's no way to install drivers on a TiVo. I did read comments online that the similar VisionTek Bluetooth keyboard would not work with a TiVo for some reason.
I was disappointed to find that TiVo has not bothered to define any USB keyboard key combinations to simulate the playback control keys: Play, FF, Rewind, Skip, Replay and Pause. If they would do that, the USB keyboard option would be much more useful. I need it for the times that my TiVo HD stops receiving remote commands for a while.
