How to set up the Chromecast

 

The set-up process for Google Chromecast is simple and the user can start by plugging in the dongle into the cable extender and then plugging the extender into the free HDMI port of the television. However, using the cable extender is not compulsory and it can be moved away from the rear of the TV in order to improve reception. In case the user has a video or audio receiver with the HDMI input, he can plug the dongle into it rather than on the TV. It is also possible for the user to plug the device into the HDMI switcher, like the three-or-two port switcher, and then plug it in to the TV.
