    Hey I was just wondering what you guys disliked about Chromecast? Or if there was anything annoying or glitchy when using it? Thanks

    Mine has been great. Only thing a little glictchy is sometimes when casting videos the sound wont work but a quick reboot of the cc always fixes it.

    Have you ever heard of YouBeam TV. It looks like it's a similar product, but I was wondering how it compared?

    I don't know if they fixed it, but initially I couldn't hide my SSID. Chromecast couldn't find it if I did

    Never heard of it. Do a quick Google search and see what you come up with?

    I have my SSID hidden and have never had a problem with Chromecast connecting. I have 2 of them and never had a problem with this. I do have a problem with loosing connection once in awhile. Rebooting the router fixes it. With the amount of devices I have connected to my network it's expected.

    @Brosko- I have checked out the YouBeam site, but I haven't used Chromecast, so I wasn't sure how they compared- in terms of usage. I have a couple of friends who really disliked Chromecast, but I wasn't sure if it was them (a personal issue) or a Chromecast issue....
