    Just looked up your speakers. Get the 3.5mm aux cable and connect it to your projectors audio out port.

    Thanks Craig. My thinking was around the iPad talking to netflix not chromecast so that makes sense what you're saying. I've wired the speakers in to the PJ and it works now. Still disappointed that my master wireless plan didn't work.

    I think they do make Bluetooth Transmitters that will do what you want. It is just another thing to get though.

    I STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you do not plug chromecast's power supply into your poineer receiver's USB port. I almost broke my receiver. My receiver states 5mA max on the USB port. Chromecast draws a little more than that. It worked fine at first. Then my stereo froze and didn't work for a day. It's not worth experimenting further.

    I guess it needs the Hdmi to control the playback still? Just wondering if audio can go through USB on it.

    I have a Yamaha V473. Have the Chromecast currently plugged into my tv but noticed no audio from the AV Receiver. Is it simply a matter of plugging it into an HDMI Port on the receiver? Would you mind telling me step by step what you did?

    Bob,

    You have two options. Your AVR supports ARC(Audio Return Channel) so you could use that, or plug the CC Directly into the AVR.

    If you use the ARC connection review your manual for your AVR. You will need to select the correct source to use the TV audio.

    You can also plug the CC directly into the AVR, that will work around the need for ARC to get the audio directly to the AVR. CEC will also then allow the CC to change the source automatically on the AVR when you start to use the CC. Personally I like having it in my AVR, but that can depend a bit on how your HDMI ports are available.

    When you guys say that you have the CC plugged into your AV/R are you using a HDMI "In" port and then matching it with a corresponding HDMI "Out" port? I'd like to cast from the CC thru the AVR so that i can use the AVRs audio settings instead of the HDTVs. I have a Yamaha RX-V367 connected to a Vizio 47' HDTV. TIA

    i just looked up the AVR. A few things. First it doesn't support DD+ so just don't be surprised by that. Second, you generally don't have a input and output for each port. The AVR will have a one output, and then however many inputs to let you select from. Generally speaking allot of AVR's won't change between connection types though. So HDMI needs to stay HDMI, component to component, composite to composite.

    You should be able to plog your CC into any HDMI port on the AVR and get PCM stereo audio to the AVR. If you want Video just make sure the HDMI output is plugged into one of the sources on your TV.

    It should be noted that since you can't get DD+ you may get similar results if you plug the CC into your TV and then use whatever stereo out from the TV back to the AVR. The biggest advantages of plugging into the AVR are: 1. If the AVR can decode DD+ for true discrete surround sound. 2. You are low on HDMI ports on the TV and have a reason to need it for something else.

    I have the CC connected to the only open port I had on my A/V which was 'DVD'. The other ports on my A/V have a Cable Box and Blu-Ray player connected.

    There is typically a row of labeled HDMI ports that are for connecting your inputs such as Cable Box, Blu-Ray Player, XBox, etc. Then there is a separate HDMI port to connect the A/V to your TV.

    Here's a quick question for you AVR geniuses. Like Liquidretro, I have a Yamaha RX-V671. My Chromecast is plugged into one of the HDMI ports on the AVR, and it works perfectly. It switches inputs correctly and everything. However, if everything is turned off when I start my cast, the TV will turn on (which is awesome), but the AVR does not. The AVR is clearly seeing the HDMI "power on" signal from the Chromecast, and is sending that signal to the TV, but the AVR itself remains powered off. Is there something I'm missing, or is there no way to get the AVR to power on as well?

    It's not a huge deal. I mean, I can certainly turn everything on first, and THEN start the cast, but it's bugging me, and I'd appreciate any help in figuring it out.

    By chance do you have pass-through enabled. I know my AVR behaved this way once I enabled that feature. Now the AVR will change the source and just pass through to to the TV whatever is active.

    I did have to enable it though. Maybe you need to turn off pass-through to get it to power on the reciever as well.

    Hi,

    Been through this thread and other forums but can't seem to find an answer to my video and audio issue with Chromecast.

    I have a Sony Bravia (KDL-46EX723), Denon AVR-1912 Receiver.

    Denon is outputting video that comes through all my devices such as my PS3 via an HDMI port to my Sony TV.
    Denon is outputting audio that comes through all my devices such as my PS3 to my External Speakers (Paradigm 5.1 speakers)

    I initially tried to plug my chromecast directly via one of the 6 HDMI ports on my Denon Receiver but for some UNKNOWN reason I get no audio or video on my Sony TV. It seems to recognize the device because I don't get the (NO INPUT) screen on my tv but its just black and nothing happens.

    I then tried connecting the Chromecast directly to one of the HDMI ports on my Sony TV and managed to get Audio and Video on my Sony TV.

    Then I wanted to get the audio sent to my receiver instead of my TV but I am unable to that working.

    So I tried what some suggested and turned on the HDMI Control on both Sony TV and Denon Receiver.

    On the Denon Receiver, it asked which STANDBY SOURCE do I want to use? So I chose the one that my Chromecast is setup on my Sony TV (HDMI 3), here's a screenshot of what the Denon offers as choices for HDMI Control:
    Connecting Chromecast to an A/V receiver-sound-system.png

    I go back on my HDMI 3 Source, this time I'm able to get Video but NO Audio.

    This being said,
    Anyone has any idea how to get Chromecast's Audio and Video to function on either connecting it through the HDMI port from the Denon receiver directly?
    Or by connecting it to the Sony TV directly using the Denon Receiver to output the audio via the external speakers?

    Thanks

    Not sure why you can't get the audio and video through the denon but if you are trying to use the HDMI audio return channel most TVs only support that on HDMI 1 or 2. Input three is just basic HDMI without cec or audio return.

    Hey... curious how you resolved audio issues when Chromecast is connected to a Denon receiver.
    I still can't get the audio to work. The video works fine... but get stereo only through the TV speakers. Not the 5.1 external speakers connected through the denon receiver.
    Appreciate any help with this.
    Thanks.

Even after I shut off the receiver, the chromecast (which is plugged thorugh usb power) remains "ready to cast" on the chrome browser and every other app. How can I ensure this thing won't burn out before long without having to go and manually remove the usb which is much too inconvenient to do every time since it is buried in a highly inaccessible location?

    Finally moved my Chromecast from the TV's HDMI port to my Panasonic receivers's port. Works great and I get Dolby Digital output now, why didn't I do this sooner?

    I have an Onkyo TX-NR609 also and just got my ChromeCast. Tried running it through one of the HDMI ports with it powered by AC plug and it won't show up on my TV. No video. Nothing. All my other HDMI components work just fine. I tried connecting the CC straight to the TV and it works just fine. Is there something I'm missing with the Onkyo AVR?

    I originally had it plugged into the front jack and it worked fine. I later moved it to the rear "game" HDMI input and added a Etekcity 4x1 HDMI inline pass through switcher. I added this just to get an analog output for music. I then route that analog output to the rear analog in for game. I don't play games so game =music for me. Now I have both digital audio and video for the main screen and room. The analog is available for zone two which is output to a 50 watt jamo MPA101 amp connected to a jamo ZI8 impedance matching connecting block. I have local volume controls in kitchen, bedroom, front porch and backyard. I leave zone two always on game so I can start music from any tablet, phone or computer in the house. With this setup I can play music even if the TV is in use and can change zone two the the main input for TV audio for a Superbowl party or smoke a cigar on the porch listening but watching TV through the window. With the HDMI switcher wired to the rear game input and placed on top of the Onkyo it makes it easy to remove the chromecast when traveling.

    Edit: added name of HDMI switcher

    I have a question. I've set up my Chromecast through my receiver (Pioneer VSX-917V) and the video is working fine. However, the audio only plays through my TV speakers. It doesn't use my surround sound speakers. I'm using both HDMI and composite for my various devices (DVD, TiVo and TV are connect via Composite; XBOX and Chromecast connected via HDMI). For my XBOX I have a separate audio cable running between my XBOX and receiver so that it plays through my 5.1 speakers. How can I get audio from Chromecast to run through my speakers instead of my TV speakers?

    I have the same receiver and haven't been able to get even video to work through ChromeCast. Can you tell me how you got that far?
