Keyboard input on FireTV for search function?

I just started using Plex about a month ago and purchased a FireTV on prime day because now I can consolidate everything into one system without having to run a home theater PC.

My main issue is the keyboard input. I have a logitech K400 keyboard plugged into the FireTV. I can use it to type into search boxes for the Amazon search and in other apps like Netflix. But with the Plex app I get an onscreen keyboard and my physical keyboard doesn't work. Oddly thought the touchpad mouse on the K400 does work and generates an onscreen mouse that i can use to click the keys on the on screen keyboard but that's more time consuming as using the amazon remote to arrow over to the right key.

Am I doing something wrong here? Is there an option I need to turn on? Is there a different keyboard that is supported?

    Any luck on this? I got a keyboard for my fire tv and have the same problem.
