Add second tv to my system

You buy another Chromecast device, connect it to your second TV, and do the setup steps in the Google Home app.
 
Make sure to assign the second TV to a different "room" in the Home app and give it a name that makes sense (like "Den TV") so you can tell the two apart.
 
I currently have three Chromecast devices on my network; Living Room TV, Den TV, and Playroom TV.

Hi, we have 1 tv on casting fine. I want to add a 2nd tv to cast. My goal is to have my Apple laptop be able to use the 2nd tv to show photos. Will that be possible in theory?

Hello Peder,

 

Thanks for reaching out. To confirm, are you also trying to set up another Chromecast to another TV? If yes, are you getting any messages during set up? What type of Chromecast device do you have?

 

I'll look forward to your response.

 

Thanks,

Jennifer

I bought a new TV. Plugging in the Chromecast was easy, but there is no option to change the remote to work with the new TV. 

once you’ve set your remote to work with a TV, the option to do that disappears, so I can’t change it. 

does ANYONE have a solution for using your existing Chromecast with a new TV?
