    Default FYI - Chromecast - BB Link Incompatibility

    Folks,

    For the longest time I could not figure out why I could not cast from Chrome on to my Chromecast from my laptop. I tried EVERYTHING!! Now Netflix worked fine and also the configuration software was able to find the Chromecast, BUT when I tried to cast a Chromecast frame, no dice, device not found. Ok, so for an unrelated reason I had to format a restore my laptop to factory, and when I installed Chrome suddenly it COULD see the device. AH I knew I was on to something. I slowly added back my programs, and checked the status of chromecasting after each. And low and behold, when I installed BlackBerry Link, Chromecast was gone! So then I uninstalled BB Link, and BAM! Chromecast was back!!!!!! So now we know, Chromecast and BB Link do not get along on the same system. Fortunately I have 2 laptops, but for those not so lucky you may need to make a choice.
