Because there's no standard way to do this, no generic interface toolbox for remote-control devices, to write to.

Perhaps you should simply get a small wireless keyboard, and use it for hotkey control. Since this is such a simple, cheap and complete solution to the issue, it hardly seems worthwhile to spend the same money on an actual, and far more limited, remote control device.

Another device you might find a much better solution is a media player device such as MvixUSA's ultio pro, or Western Digital TV Live box. They will hook upto your TV and play any kind of video direct from a harddrive, or streaming on your LAN (ethernet or wifi). The former will accept an internal Harddrive or external, but cost a bit more then the latter (usb external drive only).
