Nah the ccast is plugged into a Samsung 42" LCD, bought in 07, the perfect TV for that device since it will never be smart. I didn't know that about the apps on the new TVs though.
My Sony smart BluRay player also works like Chromecast with YouTube and maybe other apps. I just discovered this function the other day after installing the chromecast apps on my phone and tablet. I'm a bit behind on home tech gadgets.
