Default Hdmi out with bluetooth mouse - show nav buttons on the TV

I have a galaxy nexus which I have been using to watch Netflix, Hulu, and downloaded videos with mx player via hdmi on my tv. Seems like none of these video apps will display the nav buttons on my tv, only on the phone. Is there any way to get them to show up when I move the mouse? I would like to be able to pause, skip, switch apps, etc without getting up off the couch and walking over to my phone. Thanks.

Update - after some more searching I found these issues:

Issue 24784 - android - True screen mirroring for video out - Android - An Open Handset Alliance Project - Google Project Hosting

Issue 32564 - android - subtitles not displayed over hdmi when using hw decoding - Android - An Open Handset Alliance Project - Google Project Hosting

post #14 on that second link has the same problem. I am going to try the "Disable HW overlays" option when I get home this evening.

I'm looking into getting a TV for my room (first ever!) and I anticipate having similar issues. How feasible is a really long cord? Fwiw, I'd probably use my tablet- I wonder if I can control it with my phone...

I wouldn't use a long cord if I were you... bluetooth mice aren't really all that expensive. I actually have a magic trackpad and it works really well. I was thinking about getting an apple tv, but I like this better because I can do more, including torrents if I really want to. and of course access to way more apps as well.
