    an example of what to use this plug-in for?

    Hello everyone. Using Chromecast is a very cumbersome process. Get an iPad. Fire up an app that supports it. Turn on the TV. Wait for the channel switch, etc etc. And hope it all works.

    But none of this actually requires a Chomecast plug in. You can just do it with a Harmony plug in if you want.

    I struggle to think of what this is for... any real world examples?

      I have cameras and use an Event to show the front door camera on each TV as well as on the Google Home Hub (display) we have via this plugin. One Event for each. If I want to see the front door I can call it up with a voice command. I COULD use the doorbell sensor to also push the display when the bell is rung, but the family will see that as too intrusive on their TV and Hub use.

          The cameras? I have some analog cameras and convert them to IP with a Grandstream gxv 3504. That provides links for each camera as a web page: http://cam.notmydomain.com/goform/st...=get&channel=2 so I use the Cast a Web Page option in the event.
