My Chromecast is connected to the HDMI input from my home theater. When I select this input Chromecast is not working. Only if I reboot (pull power supply and reconnect) it starts up. How can i avoid this?
Should I connect the USB to a port in the tv, so when it switches on it gets power, or is there a way to have it always on, even with no HDMI signal?

Thanks for reaching out. What's the LED status on your Chromecast? Please plug in the Chromecast directly to the HDMI port on your TV and check if the same issue persists. Resetting your Chromecast might also help.
