The last couple of months, I am having to constantly unplug the power and replug it back in to restart my Chromecast with Google TV (4K). The firmware is the most current version and I don't get any type of message. And my TV will even turn on when I hit the "Home" button on my remote, but then nothing comes up on the screen and I have to restart it. The same thing is happening on a completely different TV with a different Chromecast as well. I really like the interface and everything about it, but dang this is getting annoying. Sometimes I have to unplug/plug from the TV but that's a hassle to get to every time so I just unplug the power and plug it back in again. On that point, is there a way to restart the Chromecast using the remote if you don't have any output? I guess I should check the Google Home app the next time it happens as well.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The one TV (Samsung) it almost never works. The other (Vizio), switching to another source, then switching back to the GTV source works about half the time.
Thanks for the help, kiltguy2112.
Martianman and dahollows, I'm sorry to hear that you're having an issue with your Chromecast with Google TV (4K). Could you please try to plug in the Chromecast into a different HDMI port on your TV then observe its behavior? If the issue persists, factory reset your Chromecast with Google (4K). Here's a guide.
