Actually, mine are too, but a few days ago I saw the red light on the wall. Your post caused me to walk in the other room now, and today it's solid white.

I noticed a bug last night with my 1st gen Chromecast and the playback of 5.1 audio from Google Play Movies. For some reason, movies are starting in HD with 2.0 audio. After 2 minutes of playback, the 5.1 audio track kicks in. I can then jump around the movie and it will play in 5.1. This doesn't effect Netflix or Vudu, which will play back 5.1 audio as soon as the program starts.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Any Chromecast owners have CBS All Access and try to stream The Good Fight?

With my Nexus 6 phone, streaming to either a 2nd-gen Chromecast or to an nVidia Shield (with built-in Chromecast ability), The Good Fight only streams about 10 seconds and stops.

Playing it on my phone without Chromecast is fine.

Chromecasting other programs on the same phone, even from CBS All Access, works fine.

Playing The Good Fight on other devices, like Fire TV and the nVidia Shield's CBS app without Chromecasting, also works fine.

It's only Chromecasting this specific show, that doesn't work.

Any ideas what's up with this?

I just setup my first Chromecast gen 2 device, and I think it's awesome! Very comparable to Miracast, or DLNA, or even Playcast, but I think it's easier to use.
