Regular XBMC on PC and Yatse on your phone/tablet is a great combo. Yatse has a cast plugin to send media from XBMC to your Chromecast.

Channels (last I checked) do not currently work and I would suspect that the PVR aspects of XBMC might not either.

Might work to Android local but not to CCast unless of course that content is served in a CCast compatible format. I do not have a PVR setup either so I can not confirm or deny either way what it does.

I did not see any mention of PVR in the app when I tested it.

Default How to Connect to Chromecast Dongle from within Bluestacks?

Could the OP or anyone else please explain how to get Chromecast compatible apps to work from within Bluestacks? Does this XBMC process (particularly Steps 6-7.) not rely on the Chromecast android app to connect? Whenever I launch the Chromecast app within Bluestacks it can't find my Chromecast dongle even though both devices are on the same network. Is there another way to get apps like XBMC, HBOGO etc to recognize the Chromecast on the network and show the cast button in the apps? I'd like to use Bluestacks to cast from compatible apps but I'm not seeing how this is possible without being able first to connect the Chromecast app to the dongle.Thanks in advance for any help folks can provide.

Im having the same problem, has there been a solution to this?

I've downloaded the chromecast app on bluestack but i get the message "no chromecast found on bluestack" it seems it not searching my network which has two chromecast on

I've used bubbleupnp which finds my chromecast but whenever i try to cast anything nothing happens (ive used same links on my phone no problem at all)

any help would be appreciated

Thank you

I'm in the same boat, I am trying to get the BT Sport app to cast from Bluestack. I think it's because a virtual network. Hope there is a work around. This is for my Dad who doesn't have a smart phone, and BT of course don't have a cast option from the website, unlike everyone else. Shoddy BT.
