Default Chromecast + avr receiver: your experience?

Still waiting on my Google play order, what models work? Do any avr not work? Is the auto switching working?


Please t report your success or failure with a receiver/ home audio setup...

Works great with my Denon 1613, switches input as soon as casting begins.

I use it with my Onkyo receiver. It has an HDMI input in the front of the receiver. It also happens to have a USB port that I use to power the Chromecast. I didn't have to go to the back of the unit at all.

Good news is that I get Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound with both Netflix and YouTube. When I do Chrome browser in my laptop the sound switches to "all channel stereo".

Same here, front HDMI & USB FTW! Gotta take advantage of the 5.1 surround... when do you get 5.1 from Youtube!?

It took some settings tweaking ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2380190 ) but I finally got chrome cast to work the way I wanted through my receiver. It's a Sony d520.

I don't know if you guys just prefer plugging into your receivers but if you have a TV with HDMI 1.4 you can plug the chromecast directly into your TV and audio will travel to your receiver via the "audio return channel" spec of HDMI 1.4.
Motorola Razr original -> iPhone 3G -> iPhone 4 -> Galaxy S2(i777) -> Galaxy S3(i747) -> Galaxy S4 active(SGH-i537)

Its not limited to 1.4, BUT it is limited to stereo

This is the reason why some of us want it plugged into the receiver. Plus, it also means that the receiver does all the switching instead of your ps3, cbox, BD player, roku etc all going through the receiver and them the chromecast on input 2 on the tv Those are my reasons anyway..even though I only have a ps3....

I couldn't tell you exactly what Youtube video got 5.1, but it was probably an HD video on Vevo.

My pioneer vsx9040txh works with it, and it seems it sounds better than using a Bluetooth adapter for audio.
