Reading this might help, Turn Your Extra Android Device into a Chromecast Receiver with CheapCast.
its to use one for sending and one for receiving, could be useful if u have a spare fone with hdmi.

Thanks alot!

I was just wondering if such service will be available on other platforms like, Linux or Windows. So it can run on HTPCs.

Try https://github.com/dz0ny/leapcast/

Both seem to have the same problems at the moment though, single channel? Loses connection with the sender after one or two tracks of a playlist.

Very much looking forward to seeing how this develops.

Tried loading up Cheap cast on a second device. (MK802 and ATV1200) It didn't like that at all, none of my phones could see any CCs in Music.

Same problem here, losing the connection after a song. The only way to get it working again is to either disconnect and reconnect the sender, or to restart the service on the receiver. Bar that, this is class

Had this issue as well. I found out, that CheapCast is registered as another device for Google Play Music. I already had 10 devices attached, so killing some of the old and not used ones fixed that problem.

Maybe you got the same problem, if its only Music that is not working?
