Hmmm, then it's going to be very limited or not possible at all.

We won't know till we try.
But it's a lot of work just to try....
...and even less usable when you say it won't be possible to make a universal self-learning thing.
So...

So I was messing around with the Micro Pro board I ordered and I may have a possible solution....
Do BluRay players accept a mouse input from the USB port?

Sadly no. Not in general.The specs does support mouse input, and developers are actually encouraged to add mouse support for their apps. (8-bit Memoirs also supports mouse - you can click article numbers, or just click the sides to toggle pages etc).But there are almost no blu-ray players that implements it.
The only reliable input method is infrared remote control - or make a custom socket based solution.
