    I don't have a Chromecast, so I didn't have immediate plans for it. I'd like to add it some time in the future though.

    If I've got my nzd / usd /GBP conversions correct, I've just bought you one. Hope you like it (no strings.. .)

    Little bit of background on how my TV usage has changed: 12 years ago when I registered on the forums, it was all about creating personal on-demand tv for me. Multiple tuner cards, hdds and of course gbpvr. Then as Iplayer and on demand came of age I migrated to kodi with npvr backend so I could integrate on demand and terrestrial TV. Now I hardly watch any 'linear tv', all the major UK stations have catchup services that I just chromecast, and I've got netflix for movies and binge TV, so it's all done from my phone now. I was really excited to see npvr android app, as for me this is the way it's going, so would really love to integrate this with my current watching habits (chromecast) and keep the tuner cards in use. I know people use npvr in a multitude of different setups, but I hope I'm not unique.

    The Chromecast will require a transcoding server so not the best choice of client, it actually needs to two clients too one to cast from. Could you not just cast video from the web modern ui using Chrome?
