I'd prefer not to have to have two different keyboards but I guess if there is a really good tiny keyboard only device for the TV I wouldn't mind.
Assuming your TV and HTPC are connected via HDMI, and assuming your TV supports CEC, you can use an HDMI-CEC adapter from pulse eight (http://www.pulse-eight.com/store/products/104-usb-hdmi-cec-adapter.aspx
). It will allow you to control both devices from one IR remote. Keyboard/mouse devices are mostly bluetooth, so it's rare to find a TV that can be controlled in that way. I use a logitech diNovo mini for keyboard/mouse functionality whenever I need it, but that's only occasionally.
There also might be a way to do something using eventghost, but I haven't looked at that in a long time.
