You guys are terrible :)
But it's all done with a sense of humor, and there was a time when I was into this stuff more. My work has not focused primarily on home installations for a while now, so more often than not I'm either asking for help or trying... as well as I can... to add to the discussions.
Ernie, I hope not to tarnish your reputation.

What kind of Chromecast do you have, exactly? Are you saying it's the older kind without Android TV/ Remote?
That's a good question! The one I just bought, the $30 one, just says "Google Chromecast" on the carton. It might simply not be what I'm looking for: I want to be able to cast to my Yamaha RX-A880, not directly to the TV, using a remote, not one of our phones.
As for the exact model of this generically named product, I'm going to guess that the exact model number is this info from the side panel: SKU: GA00439-US.
What will it take to have Chromecast without controlling from a phone?
Yes, That Ernie!
