5ghz wifi not showing on my Chromecast With Google TV
1
Setting up the new chromecast with Google TV & my 5ghz wifi network isn't showing up as a connection option. My 2.4ghz one is though. Is this a common issue with the new chromecast? 
What can be done about this?

I am having the same problem, the wifi scan will not detect any 5ghz network and if I connect to an AP with band steering the connection will fail.

Same issue here.  Hope this bug gets fixed.  Sitting 5 ft from m router and Google TV is using 2.4 for some reason!

Seems to be common. I can see 1 5ghz network but it is through a brick wall. The access point 2 metres away is connected on 2.4 GHz but not seen on 5GHz.

Ditto here, I set it up manually and couldn't see my 5ghz. Has anyone set it with the Google home app on their phone and have seen their 5ghz?
