  1. I have read rave reviews about this device about how great it is and how easy it is to hook up and run. I have been trying for days to get mine connected. I’ve tried connecting with an iPad mini, An iPhone 5, iPhone 4 ,iPod touch 5, even my old Windows XP notebook all to no avail. First you have to change your wifi setting to the name of the device “Chromecast1234” would reach a point in set up and would not proceed any further no matter how many times I tried, then the device changed its name and became “Chromecast4321” So I tried again with this name and got as far in set up as a verification code but would go no further and would not connect. I am very frustrated with the whole thing and will just be returning it.

  2. Scott – Do not return the device. It worked fine for me with first attempt but I tried it with my laptop.

    Do not return it, Instead you could sell it on ebay and make money out of it.
