Here is Google's official announcement...
 
Google Cast Support for HDMI CEC
We have recently rolled out additional support for HDMI CEC features for Google Cast devices.

You can now use your TV’s remote Play and Pause buttons to control media that you cast to your TV on some applications. You can also use your remote’s Exit button to stop casting an app.

We previously launched the ability for Google Cast devices to change the TV input when you begin casting.

You need to ensure your apps use the Google Cast media namespace for controlling media playback and that the media control commands are supported by the receiver app: https://developers.google.com/cast/docs/reference/messages

Your TV needs to have HDMI CEC enabled for these features to work. Follow the instructions in our User Help Center and Support Forum: http://goo.gl/J6QBDc

Note that these features may not work with all Cast enabled apps or all TV’s.

Happy Casting!

+Jeff Bower The device you linked appears to use the HDMI-CEC channel for transporting the IR codes, so it likely breaks that CEC device communication over the connection. I'm going to experiment more, but the HDMI-CEC analyzers and programmable IR-CEC bridges are too expensive. Ironically the simple remote that could be created (likely with Pause/Play, Mute, and volume up/down) would look like that of a Roku or Amazon Fire TV, and ideally like that of the Roku 3, which has a headphone jack to play the audio.

The other interesting aspect is that Roku and Amazon have (free) smartphone apps that control their device(s), much like my Logitech Harmony Smart (which has a smartphone component) remote system...

I know you still had a few questions...
HBO Now is almost here: HBO officially announced plans to launch its online-only streaming service dubbed HBO Now during Apple’s spring event Monday, and promptly managed to confuse everyone with an exclusive that isn’t quite exclusive and a price that’s not set in stone. Time to clarify a few things: What HBO Now is: Think of…

It's possible that they have good lunch stuff, but the baked goods are disappointing. The "Nussecke" I tried a while back had some weird creme in it that tasted like lard? Inedible. I gave it a second chance anyway, and was disappointed again. The Prezel was at least a day old and very dry. The Apfelstreusselkuchen tasted like pizza or quiche or something. Maybe they wanted to preserve energy by baking things together, but it clearly backfired. The Linzer Torte was very dry and had a hair baked in. Yum! Well, actually no. Check out Esther's bakery in Palo Alto instead if you want some authentic, good German cake & prezels.
