I'm wondering if it's possible to access the tv's systems with the Chrome cast remote. I want to set a sleep timer without resorting to my old remote. Thanks
No. The most you can do is turn on/off, volume up/down, mute, and input select.
The Chromecast remote is not designed to access the full range of TV functions.
I use the app Key Remapper to add new mappings to keys on the chromecast remote:
Button Mapper: Remap your keys - Apps on Google Play
Try to add a long press event to a key and launch an timer app for example:
Sleep TV Timer - Apps on Google Play
Maybe this works.
