My telly is of limited intelligence (i.e. not smart). I was considering rectifying this with a Chromecast. Before I buy it, I was wondering if anyone had experience of using one, via Denon AVR.
My queries are:
1. I’ve got a Slimport for my Nexus7. Some days it works, some it doesn’t. I’m interested to hear if anyone else has had handshake issues – basically if it’s not going to work seamlessly every time, I don’t think a Chromecast is for me.
2. If I use it to access content from my Play account does it simply use the content on my Nexus as a wireless version of the Nexus / Slimport interface? The nexus doesn’t really work well when mirrored over slimport – the number of frames per second is strange, so moving images are extremely juddery and again, this would be a deal-breaker.
3. Can I subscribe for Netflix and access it solely by the Chromecast linking with my router (i.e. again, without having to have the nexus or my laptop powered up).
Thanks – I appreciate your thoughts.
