FWIW - I do have Chromecast, and I do have Harmony hub to control my system. I do have a Harmony activity to watch Chromecast. But all it does is set the TV input. receiver input and volume keys to receiver. I still need a tablet to control content. In addition, I also have another activity for listening to music through Chromecast (Spotify) and it just keeps the TV turned off. But once again, I need a tablet to control Spotify. But in general, this whole setup works fine. I will admit, however, for netflix where there is more up/down/pause/play we use AppleTV. Chromecast is much better for music, YouTube and browser stuff. We already had appletv before we got the Chromecast. I got the Chromecast because I was interested and it was so cheap. I likely would not bother with appletv if I had got Chromecast first
My system is not HDMI-CEC compatible, so it will not work as described by the above article.
