That second step that makes you select which TV to "cast" onto becomes annoying, especially when I only have 1 TV to cast upon.
How can make that single chromecast be default so I don't have to choose every time whenever I decide to cast media onto the big screen?
Because that Cast Button is for more than just starting a cast it is also used to get control of a cast that has already started.
The Cast button isn't just a cast button it is a Cast MENU that allows you to see what state the CCast is in (if the App codes it correctly) and if in a Casting state ask you if you want control.
If you made it a one button operation it would be easy to cast to a a device you hadn't intended and/or ruin a cast someone else was watching all because you accidentally hit the cast button.
