I have a sony BR dvd player. My hdmi cable (in-wall) is damaged at the plug, and I cannot pull another one. The Sony BR player is a smart player, has many apps including netflixc, etc. Can Chromecast access my Sony BR player?
Thanks, Phils. I was not specific enough. It is Sony S5100 BD palyer. It does have wifi. It has many apps, but I do not know if it has casting app. I just read the review from cnet. It says it is DLNA compliant. Do not know what DLNA is.
Here is the link for cnet.
Thanks flavict for your suggestion. It is too expensive for my case. I am waiting for a hdmi repair kit from China, and see if I can repair it (soldering involved, but a few dollar solution if I can solder all the 19 pins). Failing that, I'll just use an external cable, where I can hide most of it behind the tv legs.
