Work with your linux netbook with Chromecast as external monitor - in full HD resolution

I got some old netbook with 1024x768 and newer more powerful one with 1366x768. Unfortunately none of these has a digital video output. With a Chromecast it's easy:

xrandr --panning 1920x1080

Then run Chrome, install the Beta Google Cast app and there set the resolution to 1920x108 and the max bitrate to 5000 up to 10000. Now you can cast the full virtual desktop while on the notebook you just a panned part of the desk.

If you are in a spot without wifi, but have cell service and your phone can broadcast wifi, will CC work? Thanks...

+Jeffrey Duddles note that it does hammer the battery a bit, for longer sessions (like kids wanting to watch a movie while on holiday) I find it easier to use the MHL output of the phone and attach it to HDMI, since my HDMI adapter needs external power it also powers the phone.

It's google's new IOT remote, as you can see in the image the person just said, "ok kitty" and is about to cast some show.  Nice new tech! (j/k)

Yes, I was merely stating that mine had been acting up as of late as well and I am also unable to cast anything to it.

There is a special hardware version of the Google Nexus 5 just for Sprint CDMA users ? I didn't realize that.

Kind of like the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, I guess, except it gets updates.

Do the rest of us normal Nexus 5 owners not need this update ?

Silly question, I have windows 8 desktop computer without wifi. I can not install the chromecast app because no wifi. (I am in an office environment)  I need to change the backdrop and also somehow get files to stream from a folder on my PC (or maybe even from a windows fileserver).  how can I do this without wifi? is there a way to trick chromecast into thinking i am on wifi or is there any workaround?

It is a WiFi device. No other way to connect to it. I'm not sure I am understanding why you are trying to use a ChromeCast if you don't have or don't want WiFi. WiFi is what it was designed for. Sounds like you need something other than a ChromeCast.
With WiFi and a Google Chrome extension you can do exactly what you are trying to do, but it would require WiFi.
I have a Roku 2 XS model I believe that has a wired network connection AND WiFi that will do that without WiFi, but you do need a wired connection from your computer.
Hope that helps, but I need more information.
******************************************
Well after a little more research I did find out how you can stream stuff from you PC to Chromecast without WiFi. Get this Ethernet to ChromeCast Network adapter for only $15 from Google at the Play Store.

Heads up, and sorry for the late post, AirParrot can stream to multiple Chromecasts at the same time if they're on the same network.
