How are folks casting from media servers to the receiver using the chromecast?

Is it possible to use a USB cable from the microserver to the chromecast or does the device default to the wireless network?

Wireless connection, the usb is purely for power.

As above, the USB socket is only for power.

I have a Microserver (N40L), with Serviio installed, along with BubbleUPNP server.

I am using BubbleUPNP (paid for version) on my Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and my old Andypad.

The settings I use in the BubbleUPNP app (under ChromeCast) are:

Video Encoding Speed - Ultra Fast
Max Video Bitrate - 4000
Enforce Max Video Bitrate - Checked
Preserve Multichannel Audio - Unchecked (The TV I have my chromecast in doesn't have surround, so a waste of bandwidth for me)

This produces streaming DVD ripped MKVs without any loss of perceivable quality as far as I'm concerned. I've yet to try BluRay rips, but I only bothered ripping a few, and those stuttered over the wired LAN, so guessing Wireless won't be anywhere near as good as that!
