Ability to use Remote Control?

Would love the ability to use a standard RC6 IR remote with VT. 

A few people I know are not happy using a keyboard or mouse to control a PC Videoplayer.

They would rather have the use of a remote, such as Kodi can be configured for.

Is it possible to configure VT to use a remote?

Thanks.

Hi, this is a good point I had on the list but forgot to work on....

Do you use your pc as a media center connected to a big tv while you're siting away (big screen / sofa experience) or is your regular pc siting in front of it but you want to have the option to control it via remote?

I'm asking because I'm planning to add the capability to enable the xbox UI in a PC.  The xbox ui is designed to be used with a remote / controller not with a mouse... I'd just need to add the support for these IR remotes.... any remote you recommend I can buy to develop this feature? 

Thanks

Yes, media server connected to TV and sofa surfing.

As far as I know, Xbox does not have a proper full remote, just recycles the available controller?

Why not use the MCE remote which are available for peanuts and is used with Kodi a lot...
