If you install the official Roku remote app on an Android or iOS mobile device, you can use it's on-screen virtual keyboard to enter text values directly without having to move the cursor all over the place., once the text entry field is highlighted and waiting for input.  You can even use its voice function to enter the characters by saying them one at a time.
