Okay, I see what you're trying to achieve.

There were some "turn my Android into a (Chrome)cast receiver" apps in the early Chromecast (2012) days, but I think they all died when the V2 API was released, since the V2 API validated that it was casting to an approved device.

Short of using a small display and an actual Chromecast, I can't thnk of anything that would provide what you want.

The Chromecast firmware wouldn't really help you since its hardware and firmware is very specific to its hardware and intended use.

Thank you for your information about how it works. I certainly know that it is beyond my own capabilities to try to figure out how Google validates that with it's own property. Cheers! And maybe it will be figured out some day

The Official Android TV's have built-in chromecast.

I hope a talented Genius Android developer, could extract the apk (using Es explorer) & hack the apk, to make it work in other Android based TV's, it would be really great.
