    Is it possible to use the TV's remote to pause a video playing via Chromecast? I have my Chromecast plugged into an LG TV which supports HDMI-CEC but I can't seem to pause a video using the TV's remote. Switching HDMI ports to the one to which the Chromecast is plugged in works, but that's not as vital to me. Ideally, I would like to be able to use the playback features of the remote once the video starts. Otherwise, it's just a pain to have to go back to the smart device, wake it up, etc .... just to pause or rewind a video.

    It can be done with Google TV but not Chromecast.

    I can't think of any way to do it with Chromecast and can't guess as to if or when it will be possible but requiring a smart phone or table to get started and then using the TV remote for playback isn't likely a high priority feature.

    CC supports only few cec features (e.g., power up, switch input & volume).
    Side note: powering CC via AC/outlet (instead of tv/avr usb port) helps w/cec.
