    how will I get sound from Netflix if I plug Chromecast directly to a 1080p projector? when I plugged it in,
    the video part works fine... The projector is the Sony VPL-HW50ES 3D projector.

    I tried plugging it into my A/V receiver which is also connected via HDMI to the same projector... it would
    not recognize the Chromecast at all. I have this Sony STR-DA5800ES A/V receiver Sony STR-DA5800ES 9.2-channel home theater receiver, Internet-ready at Crutchfield.com

    It should work fine connected to the receiver. Do you get any kind of output from it?

    The Chromecast worked fine on every TV I connected it to. Projector only got video(obviously). A/V receiver doesn't even see it. (tried my Sony and an old Pioneer receiver)

    I am really hoping it will work on my receiver. You might try to change the order your powering stuff on for the HDCP handshake to work correctly. I have had to do that with a PS3 before. I think it was TV, Receiver, then PS3.

    I unplugged it and tried it again. This time it works perfectly on my A/V receiver. The sound comes from the A/V receiver and the video goes to the projector.

    It should work fine with any HDMI port.
