My cc1 after preview indicated it could not connect and asked to be rebooted. I waited a moment and it simply started working.

I have received the new update firmware for my chromecast device as a member of the new preview program, it should be for general improvements. And this update is apply for the first and second generation of chromecast plus chromecast audio.

..The change I have noticed is the starting screen is showing now G icon instead of chrome icon.

Also all screens for factory reset and guide to set up the device had been changed.

Also when I set up my chromecast after factory reset, it asked me to put the WiFi password from his own without any entry from my side.

That's it for now.

The name Chromecast never made sense, since Chromecasts run on Android, not on Chrome OS or Chromium. I think Google is organizing all their hardware stuff, and that's good.

My First generation Chromecast started experiencing issues after a firmware update two months ago. After the said update it have issues connecting to different routers. Tried Factory resetting it but it now either can't be found by my devices (Android Phone, Tablet and a Windows 10 Laptop) or if it is found is experiencing issues connecting to the router (Router can't be found, incorrect router name or password). Anyone who has experienced the said issues? What did you do to fix it? Can we manually update or change a Chromecast's firmware?

Thanks!

I just cut into a problem: You used to be able to cast from multiple YouTube sources to one Chromecast. This feature seems to be gone. Do you have the same problem?

For those looking to use your Chromecast in a hotel room, here's a cheap and compact WiFi sharing device that seems to work well. Connect it to the hotel WiFi, use a phone to activate the Internet, then your Chromecast can share the connection.
 
At least I got my Chromecast working in the hotel room through a shared WiFi connection.

I had a working prototype WiFi sharing mechanism running on a Raspberry Pi, but this is more compact and means I don't need to finish the web UI:

I have both HooToo and TPLink nano routers, HooToo is better because it has USB port and you can take your media files with you even when you are offline.

+Robert Le Blah you can try it without disconnecting the internet: turn off backup & sync in Photos, then shoot a picture. That will exist only on the phone (crossed out cloud icon). Still, you can cast it to the CC.

Hi community,

We have Anevia VM+ CDN with Load Balancer and Edge Servers when our Chromecast devices put a get of content to the load balancer, the LB answer with 302 redirect (we use CORS headers) Chrome require the Chunks to new origin but not close the conection with LB (under normal connection witrh other device the App. send TCP RST/FYN to LB) the next chunk is requiered again to LB and Chrome is re directed to the new EDEG server.

If any on the comunity have a similar experience and some workaround.

Kind Regards

With Google dropping the Nexus branding from its handsets, we're starting to see the biggest shift in the company's strategy for its Android phones since 2009. According to *Android Police*, Google will unveil its phones along with a 4K Chromecast, Google Home, and Daydream VR headset on October 4.

Why doesn't the options button on the cast extension work? It gives an error ...The webpage at chrome-extension://boadgeojelhgndaghljhdicfkmllpafd/options.html might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address...which then forces you to use your cellphones app to change the network connection. The current process to change the network connection from my laptop was a nightmare due to that option not working. Google needs to fix it...so we don't slam our cast on the floor...lol.

Can anyone recommend a good PICO (or regular) projector that actually works with Chromecast's power relay? I'd like to press cast and have the projector turn on, then go to sleep after I end the cast.

This one looks great, thanks. Wish that Sony Laser PICO was HDMI-CEC compatible.
