it in plug chromecast protip

I moved my TV from downstairs to the upstairs. My kids complain about how weak the wifi signal is upstairs but I ignored their pleas until I tried to watch YouTube TV on the Chromecast upstairs myself... Wow. Freezing, force closes, stuttering. It was horrible!

Wondering what I could do to make it better I thought of somehow bringing my wireless router upstairs. That would take too much cable and too much wire stapling though. Not sure what to do I just stood there and stared at that round Chromecast device.

And then it hit me! The Chromecast USB power wire was plugged into the USB port on the TV. It worked downstairs so why not upstairs? Well I can't explain why but once I plugged the Chromecast USB power cable directly into the wall the darn thing worked!

No issues. No frame dropping. Nothing. Not sure how it made a difference but plugging the power wire into direct power worked haha. Give it a try if you are having trouble with your Chromecast too. [Image: 7982ce19893e821231099061bc5db565.jpg]
