This makes some sense to me, as screen mirroring could be a feature that is easily used for spyware.
I have gotten a Chromecast, and hooked it to my TV.. but it is not outputting a surround signal,it seems..Does anyone, know if and how it would be possible to hook the chromecast up so that , when streaming from utube or HBO go, netflix, I could get a surround signal to my surround sound processor? Hooking it into the tv hdmi port seems to not work..
Exactly what do you have connected to what and how?
If your TV and surround processor support HDMI-ARC (Audio Return Channel) then 5.1 content should pass over.
If one or both of the two do not support ARC, then you will need to connect your TV's digital audio output (usually optical) to your surround processor.
I ow an iPad and bought a plug in for it so I can connect an HDMI cable to it. Well, when I travel I always forget a HDMI cable.
Now that I have a Nexus 5, how does Chromecast work? Do I need a certain app on my phone, or does any video app support Chromecast? I'd like to be able to add videos to my phone, and put them in the TV.
Chromecast will work with both your iPad as well as your Nexus.
But for travel you'll want to bring your own router as hotel/free WiFi usually doesn't allow clients to see each other so your devices wouldn't be able to talk to Chromecast.

Hotel may have issues aside from AP isolation to mess with you...
Some use Certificate Auth and require you to go to a web page to accept terms before it will allow you to connect to the net.
Now there may actually be a way around it by casting a tab to the CCast (if you can connect at all) and maybe that will work but it will vary from hotel to hotel and I haven't had a lot of chances to find out what all the limitations might be.
