Problem casting from iPad and iPhone
« on: March 27, 2016, 11:16:59 AM »

I'm trying to cast to a Sony Android TV using the inbuilt Google Cast app (latest version from an iPhone 5 or an iPad Air 2.

I can cast OK from Netflix and YouTube. However, I cannot cast from other apps. For example the BBC Sports app seems to connect to the TV (and the TV shows BBC ready to cast)  but whenever I try to cast the apps crashes and nothing appears on the TV. Another app again seems to connect to the TV but nothing appears - the screen either goes blank or just shows the Googlecast icon.

I have tried disabling/enabling, Forced Shut down, reset TV etc but nothing seems to make any difference. I was able to cast from the last app initially but now nothing appears - I'm not sure what the version of the Google Cast app was when it worked - it was either or

Any ideas as to what the problem could be and the solution would be appreciated.
