    I just made this chart as a handy guide for what each device (most popular) is capable of for each app (most popular). This may not be 100% accurate, so please let me know if I got anything wrong. This chart assumes the highest end version of each device (example: Roku Ultra, not Roku Express)...

    I have a Chromecast Video and I bought with it a power supply that has an ethernet jack to be able to stream to it hard wired. As I understand it, the power supply is actually an all in one combination of a power supply, a usb otg splitter, and a usb nic. I bought it from google, back when...

    I currently have a Denon AVR-1910, and that receiver has issues with Dolby Digital Plus in that sounds can be very lispy. However, this is not the case with regular Dolby Digital. When I first got the Chromecast, I was able to go into the settings and turn off DD+ and only have Dolby Digital...

If I go to YouTube and do a 5.1 test as it goes through the channels the front right and the front left are correct the center is correct, but the rears and the sub...
  11. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    Just realized that AVS allows threads with polls. Not sure if that's always been the case or if it's new with the recent forum change. So there are a lot of streaming devices -- boxes, sticks, dongles etc. -- out there now. We could break it down to specific devices, like all generations of...

    Hello, I currently use my Xbox one for media streaming. I no longer want to do that. I want the interface like the new Google home but the ability to use my universal remote. The whole point is to have one remote to control them all. It seems like every android box has no IR and is bluetooth...

    I am playing Dolby Digital 5.1 content on my Yamaha VX-371 through ChromeCast for the past few years and it worked well. Recently I noticed that the audio stutter every 15 or so seconds. At that time, the 5.1 speaker icons on the receiver blinks for a moment. I tried changing the power brick...

    Hi I've just bought a Q Acoustics M3. Very impressed so far. I have a relatively straightforward question (I think!) but I can't seem to find an answer so far online. If I plug a Google Chromecast 2nd or 3rd gen (I believe 1st gen won't cast audio) into the HDMI in slot, will I be able to cast...

    I just got a Pioneer VSX-LX302 today. The Chromecast feature for music is really cool and super simple to use. I just go on my phone, play music, select the Pioneer receiver (which always shows up even when not in Chromecast mode) and then the receiver switches automatically to Chromecast mode...

    I have always thought of myself as relatively technologically proficient, but I am finding myself sorely behind the times.
