Why can't I cast to a FetchTV box like a chromecast.
I don't want to add a Chromecast to my Lounge TV where the fetch box is.
Surely, it's not that hard to enable it, when other TV's have that feature BUILT-IN !!!
I'm sorry that this option is yet to become, available @bizpix. But, I'm in agreeance with you that this is a good thought. We are always looking at ways to create a more seamless experience for our customers and I have marked this as feedback for the relevant teams to review.
Suggest you complain to your TV maker that it doesn't have Chromecast BUILT-IN !!!
Adding cast capability to any equipment requires a change at the hardware level. This is a big deal for most companies and would usually only be done when the next hardware series of Fetch TV is released. Hopefully casting is on the list however at the moment its generally a lot more direct to cast to the TV itself (either the embedded chromecast or a $40 dongle plugged in at the back)
@petergdownload Mate, Complain - Really?
It's a 10y/o Sony LCD (one of the first 1080p models) and Still Kickin'.
When I cast from my PC to other Chromecast units in my house - Fetch TV is identified - BUT says Source not supported. I was just asking if my PC can see the Fetch as cast unit - why doesn't it.
