I'm using the new 2.4 Ghz remote, how can I prevent the onscreen keyboard from appearing?

Try Null Keyboard,  a 3rd party application which prevents an onscreen keyboard from being displayed when a text field is selected.  This application is especially useful when paired with our 2.4 Ghz remote control, allowing you to fully utilize the QWERTY keyboard without having to first minimize the default onscreen keyboard.
Null Keyboard can be installed by accessing Google Play, which is available in the Apps section of your VBox.  After searching for Null Keyboard and installing the application, please press the wrench button on your remote to access the Android settings.  Once in Settings, you will need to scroll down to the Language & Input section.  On the main page, please ensure that Null Keyboard is selected as the input device, and press the “OK” button on your remote where it says “Default Keyboard”. Change the default keyboard from “English US (Android Keyboard)” to “Null Keyboard”.
Now, when a text field is selected, an onscreen keyboard will not appear and you may use the QWERTY keyboard on the 2.4 Ghz remote instead.
