We need something like this for Windows as well. So that audio can be cast from things like Winamp, WMP or other music managers. You can use the beta "Cast screen" option but it's not ideal. And especially with Cast for Audio. This also raises the need again for an official Google dongle or 2.0 Chromecast with an audio jack.
My "Ethernet Adapter for Chromecast" just arrived today, and I'm surprised I haven't seen more talk about it here. Both the wired and wireless connections are active at the same time, which will be my primary usage. I'll try to do a review as soon as possible.
