I'm not sure if this is true for every app, but with some another device on the same WiFi network can control the playing content. So, for example, two otherwise unrelated devices can both...

Yes, as mentioned the Chromecast Audio is not HDMI, it's 3.5 mm, with the additional option of (stupidly expensive) adapters to do optical or RCA. It has no video UI, only audio. The idea is to...

I picked up a couple of Chromecast audios along with a new soundbar with built in Cast support over the holidays. It's not quite as slick as a Sonos system, but it makes for a functionally comparable...

The Ultra probably needs more power than the port on the TV can provide. You could probably swap it out for a phone charger, if you needed to. You're better off having it on a dedicated power source...

Amazon will now ship these to Canada, though it's over $50 after shipping and import duties, and Amazon.ca still doesn't carry it.

If your AVR can pull audio from HDMI, then plug this directly into the AVR. If it can't pull audio from HDMI, then you can use the audio out from your TV. I use the optical out from one of my TVs for...

SageTV is dead, I'm afraid. The team is likely working on GoogleTV, but I kind of think Google is done with that segment. Online streaming is their thing, and it's the future of TV anyway.
