Do we have a way yet to set a static IP address for the chromecast? Mine are rooted and using eureka rom. My router doesn't have an option to set IP address based on mac address, and there are no custom FW available for it. In know in normal android, we get options for the device to have a static IP. Is there an option maybe for that hidden away in the Eureka rom? Or are there any other suggestions to get this accomplished?

I guess you could use dhcpsrv, the PC program a lot of use to force the Chromecast to use a desired DNS without changing the router setup. Just set it up to recognize only the Chromecast MAC address. But you'd have to have dhcpsrv running each time you powered up the Chromecast.
