    Slingplayer for Chromecast


      I have the slingplayer app on my iphone and it works.  Then when I try to cast it to my TV through chromecast, it works for a second, but then drops and tells me the "connection has failed."  All my other chromecast apps work fine (netflix, watch espn, ect.) but when I cast with slingplayer the connection drops as soon as it loads.  Both are on my wifi network.  Any suggestions?

          Hello JakeS55,


          Generally, when we see issues with the Chromecast from any location, these issues arise due to TCP not being supported within your router. This can be fixed by Port Forwarding your home router, using the steps within this article:



          There is a link within that article that will take you to an area to pick your router make and model; once you've chosen this, follow the provided steps and this should resolve your issue.


          I hope this helps!
