Chromecast refreshes hdmi input
« on: January 05, 2014, 04:49:49 PM »
Hello everyone
I love my chromecast :D but I noticed that sometimes when I turn the tv on (not every time) the chromecast screen will come on, then will go off leaving a black screen for a few seconds, then going back to normal, it seems to be refreshing the input.  It usually stays on once the tv is turned on, but this happens every so often. Is this normal? I can stream once it's got past it fine I just want to know if this is common :) also the tv usually turns on to the chromecast hdmi input when turned on as it is the last input used when I turned of the tv.

My TV turns on to whatever input was last used.  I never noticed it going black or refreshing.   If the TV is off and on a different input than the Chromecast and I hit the cast button from any Chromecast compatible app.  The TV will turn itself on and switch to the Chromecast input.  So cool.
