Hello everyone. I purchased a chromecast to use at our cottage which has no internet connection. I setup the chromecast at home with an active internet connection but when I take the router to the cottage and set everything up I cannot cast.
My tablet can see the chromecast on the home app but when I try to cast everything just freezes. I did enable the guest feature and still no luck.
Does anyone have an idea if it is possible? If not looks like it was a useless purchase.
Thank you in advance!
That's unfortunate. Wished that was stated somewhere. The requirements page sates the following:
All Chromecast devices require a TV with High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) 1.3 or higher built-in. HDCP 2.2 is required to support 4K content. Most televisions that are five years old or newer and have HDMI ports will have at least one port that supports HDCP 2.2.
In order to view 4K or Ultra High-definition (UHD) content, in addition to the requirements listed above, your equipment must meet the following requirements:
From my understanding you need a high speed internet connection to view 4k content. It does not state anywhere that an internet connection is required to cast.
