Hey there Joehqw,

I'm sorry to hear that your Chromecast with Google TV is having issues with a black screen. I've experienced this issue in the past, so I'd be happy to help you out. The first thing I would check is your TV's settings. Look for a Power Saving option that could be affecting the HDMI port that the Chromecast is plugged into. Just to be safe, what model of TV do you have?

I look forward to your response, and if you have any other questions or concerns for me, please let me know!

Best regards,
