I know. Everyday I use it, I need to reset 5-10 times. I would even pay more if it worked but this is all google can produce. Any tips?

I have been having the same problem. After months of working fine now it rarely ever casts. Tried restarting everything and that worked for all of 5 minutes.

I've now removed the Chromecast USB from the TV and directly plugged it into a power outlet. It is working fine now.

Hope this fix works for you too

So glad im not the only one. Its complete garbage. It started with me having to reset it every day but now i have to reset the chromecast, factory rest the wifi, delete and reinstall google home all at one and it still doesnt connect, keeps saying cant be found even though ive done everhthinh it tells you to. Takes about 3 hours of doing it all for it to eventually work. Im so done with this garbage, will be switching to a firestick. Wont be wasting my money on google trash anymore

YUP. Agree with all the sentiments above.... it is on a new level of shit lately. I've already reset everything about 5 times TODAY.

just got my gen 3 and OMG, Im somewhat tech savy but have to get out my old 2.4 netgear to even get this thing to connect after first contact/config.  I was hoping after completing the initial setup that all would be fine but can't ever get to it, send back, wasted 4 hours on this little piece of CRAP.  And make me use my phone to setup/config, download home, blah/blah, thought beauty was you just plug into the hdmi, find it with cast and off you go......  what a joke.

Nothing like coming home after a long day of work, fixing up a nice dinner to enjoy with one of my favorite shows, then watching it get cold as I spend the next 20 minutes troubleshooting Chromecast.

I can’t agree more. Guarantee that when I’ve cooked a good dinner and I sit down to watch my favourite series it’ll f**k up and I have to reboot WiFi to get it started. Absolute shite. Cheers fellow sufferers!!

I agree it  sucks. I waste my time trying to make this thing work. Non-intuitive instructions and too many passwords and bullshit to even get past various screens.

Why is Google continuing to ignore Chromecast users?
The name Chromecast help is a joke at best and an insult at worst.
The thing is only useful if you want to look at other people's photographs on your TV...

I should have looked at the forums before buying one.
I won't be spending any more money on Google hardware.

I set it up in a motorhome. New this new that. Works OK but not great. Next night it doesn't. Nothing has changes. Yes, I can see photos but nothing else that allows me to connect to a video. So much wasted time trying this trying that. Resetting, rebooting. WHY IS THIS SO HARD? Not only does it not work but it doesn't say why and if it gives an error message it is incomprehensible. Did a human being do user testing on this? Well below the usefulness and quality I have come to expect if Google - and this I paid for?
