    Long story short....some guy at a party recently kept trying to chromecast Pandora and it was messing with what was playing on the TV.

    Anyway to restrict what devices use my chromecast? Besides not allowing someone on to the network or changing the password?

    Thanks!

    I had this same thing happen. I have two Chrome sticks and they rock.

    Just change the password. Sometimes the quickest solution is the easiest.

    Only other way would be to block the guy's device by blocking the MAC address in your router (most routers have this capability). You'ld have to look in the MAC address table of for the device and then choose to block it; he would never be able to join your network.

    But I also feel, like SlipDude, his suggestion is by far the easier one.
