Casting from my phone to two different TVs that are located in different rooms

Hi. I recently had my chromecast setup on my TV in the living room (TV1).

However, I recently bought a new TV (TV2) and placed it in the living room. TV2 has chrome cast included (so no need to place a chrome xast mechanism into it).

TV1 was relocated to my bedroom. So when I try to cast to TV1 from my phone, it sets up to cast to TV2.

 How do I get to cast from my phone to TV1?

Is it possible to cast to TV1 AND TV2 from my phone?

You cannot cast to two devices at the same time.

 

As for your other problem, it sounds like you have the names and/or locations of your TVs setup wrong.  When you physically move a Chromecast (or any Google device), you have to go into the Google Home app and change the name and location because it can't tell that it's been moved.

For instance, I moved a device from my garage to my den.  But it still says "Garage speaker" because I haven't updated the information in the Google Home app yet.

Go into the Google Home app and make sure each device is setup with the correct name and location that you want.

Are your TV with Chromecast built-in and the other Chromecast device connected to the same WiFi network bandwidth?

If you wish to cast one source to two TVs, use a HDMI splitter.
