    Hey folks,

    I'd like to choose a movie on my Nexus 7 tablet (that's stored on my tablet) and have it start playing on my costar. Is this possible?

    Thanks

    I think I read that you can send video to your google tv with the able remote app.

    The thing about the Able Remote is that it is more convenient to use it with the Sony or Logitech GTV devices - this is because the Vizio Co-star box itself does not have an IR blaster - only the Vizio remote has the IR blaster built-in. This was explained by the Able Remote developer in the following thread:

    http://www.googletvforum.org/forum/google-tv-apps/4150-able-remote-google-tv-16.html

    From the thread:

    "The Vizio Co-Star device does not have an internal or cabled IR blaster. Only the Co-Star physical remote has a IR blaster. The physical remote can be used to send the IR commands for IP remotes such as Able Remote, but it is disabled by default. The remote goes into power save mode when the physical buttons aren't pressed. You have to disable power save: Settings -> Devices -> Bluetooth -> Vizio XRA700 Remote -> Remote power save -> Off. The remote will be on all the time and can then be used to forward the IR commands for Able Remote. You have to point the remote at the devices and of course the remote battery will be drained faster."
