Re: HH5 and Google Chromecast

I just got my HH5 - up until now I've been using an old O2 hub (my Chromecast worked fine with the O2 hub).

 

I've done the following:

  • renamed 2.5GHz band
  • Changed to channel 1 (based on monitoring the channel usage)
  • turned off UPnP
  • turned off parental control
  • turned off smart setup
  • factory reset the chromecast device

 

I've run out of things to turn off or change but the Chromecast still doesn't work. Has anyone managed to consistently solve these problems yet?

 

Thanks

Re: HH5 and Google Chromecast

Here is a description of the symptoms that I get:

  • I use the CC app to config the device
  • onscreen I get to the "connecting" message
  • app fails to find the device on the network
  • I can now cast a tab to the device
  • after 3 minutes the casting freezes and I can no longer cast an app
  • onscreen message changes to "set me up"

(I guess the 3 minutes is the CC device connection timeout)

 

Like I said above I have tried the following:

  • renamed 2.5GHz band
  • Changed to channel 1 (based on monitoring the channel usage)
  • turned off UPnP
  • turned off parental control
  • turned off smart setup
  • factory reset the chromecast device

Re: HH5 and Google Chromecast

I've got a HH5 with default settings for wireless. I've not turned anything off or unsynced 2.4 abd 5GHz and it works perfectly had both for over a year and apart from having to replace the googlecast because it was making an annoying noise I've had no problems.
