Great feature! Works very well from my limited testing. I just really wish google would release an another Chromecast with a few more features like analog/SPDIF audio and ethernet.

Incorporating S/PDIF and ethernet wouldn't fit with what Google are trying to achieve. It would become a much more bulky device, and lose its plug'n'play features. If you want those outputs, go for a Roku. I've got two Roku 2 XS's, and they have both these ports.

I totally get that, but I wonder whether other manufacturers can make Chromecast devices. I could see Sony, Samusng, LG, etc. making such a device.
