Chromecast

Hi,

 

I have an Orange gigaset se572 router and was wondering if this would work with Chromecast?

Re: Chromecast

Well, the Siemens router does 2.4 GHz 802.11 b or g WiFi, so it should be OK.

 

A USB is not a display port. You've effectively downgraded your tablet in that respect.

Re: Chromecast

No reason not to. It's just a wireless device.

Re: Chromecast

Thanks for replying @XRaySpeX. Was just the tech requirements for Chromecast threw me, 802.11 b/g/n (802 11n at 2.4ghz only) with wep, wpa and wpa2.  On digging around I think just standard router blurb.

 

Getting new android tablet. Old one had micro hdmi and I had cheap long cable running to tv hdmi for occasional use, but not on new one, only usb otg, and can't see an easy cheap way to connect to tv.

Re: Chromecast

Thanks @XRaySpeX, couldn't find decent tablet with hdmi. Think it may be possible with usb otg but complicated and no cheaper than Chromecast.

Re: Chromecast

Isn't USB OTG just Micro USB -> Std USB? Still think it won't provide a display signal like HDMI. It's just a port converter.

Re: Chromecast

Seen articles that imply its possible with adaptors and cables, so not sure whether it just a little usb or has other capabilities tbh! Chromecast just looks easiest, cleanest solution.
