Has anyone compiled a list of possible Netflix/Hulu remote commands for the Metro UI?

I've gotten some functionality to work, like play/pause, backing out of menus, and some amount of Navigation in netflix. But HULU is a bust. and navigation in netflix is pretty finicky and cant get past the main categories (aka I cant actually enter the categories just see the popular hits)

- Trying to get it all remote able without using a trackpad app.

I wouldn't be surprised if it never works correctly.

That would be really lame. I run on a 100" screen so I need the appliance based versions that will run HD and "super" HD. Its been workable using an ipad with a remote touchscreen app. Maybe Ill look into buying a dedicated trackpad or something. Just works so much nicer to press buttons with the Girlfriend and visitors vs mouse cursor

I've had lots of problems with Windows 8 and the remote. I can't skip forward by 30 seconds anymore in recorded TV, PowerDVD 11 doesn't load within Media Center, and Netflix doesn't like anything but arrow keys.
