Update: Significant Limitations of Vizio Co-Star Google TV Device

It seems 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. Its an awkward solution, but at least it is technically possible.
