    Slingbox to Chrome browser to Chromecast?

    Visibility: Open to anyone

      Rather than tie up my phone or tablet I would just like to throw Sling video from my PC to my TV with Chromecast.  I've searched but I haven't found a definitive answer.  Some older posts mentioned that some plugins such as Silverlight cause problems.  Has anyone had any success with this?

          Still looking for help on this one.  I got my Chromecast today and it seems on first attempt that I can throw the Chrome browser to my TV via the Chromecast but the video from my Slingplayer does not show up.  I have the Slingplayer app on my Kindle Fire but I don't see any option for casting.  My next option would be an Android emulator on my laptop.  Any thoughts?

              Just hung up with Slingbox.  Currently PC version of slingplayer is not compatible with Chromecast. At least for live TV.  On demand movies and shows that are playing in the browser will cast but not live TV in the slingplayer. You have to cast from your mobile device using the app.  This sucks!!!
