Pixelated Chromecast from laptop

DenverDTS

Using brand new high end commercial grade LG 75" monitors. When chromecasting desktop from laptops the experience is poor. Image quality pixelated and overall image quality is bad. Steaming direct on the TV using the Chromecast device is great. It's when casting the desktop. 

 

Insight?

 

Thank you.

Hi DenverDTS,

 

Thanks for reaching out. Let's sort this out.

 

A few question: are you using a Chrome browser? What's the OS version of your laptop and its make and model? When did the issue start?

 

Give these steps a try:

 

  1. Make sure the Chrome browser is updated.
  2. Reboot your laptop.
  3. Reboot your router.
  4. Reboot your Chromecast.
  5. Plug in the Chromecast into a different HDMI port on your TV.
  6. Plug in the Chromecast into a different TV screen if one is available.
  7. Factory reset your Chromecast.

Thanks,

Jennifer

Hello there,

 

Thanks for trying the suggested steps. Could you please try to cast a tab instead of casting your desktop and check if the same issue will persist? Also, try to download Chrome Canary and test.

 

Regards,

Jennifer

Casting to the tab provides the same results. I will test with Canary.

Hi there,

 

It's me again. Have you had a chance to try it on Chrome Canary? If yes, how was it?

 

Thanks,
