My chromecast is hooked up to hdmi1 on my panasonic st50. When I try to cast to the tv it does not change to the correct hdmi input. If I'm watching tv and try to cast, it stays on the input, but the screen goes black. Anyone know a solution to this?

Two things it could be...

1 - Your TV is older and does not support HDMI-CEC
2 - It does support it but is not turned on in settings.

I will note that there have been times where the CCast would lose CEC connection requiring a reboot of the CCast to get it back.

Try that first then see if the TV has CEC disabled.
And note it may be configurable for each input so be thorough...
