    Which one will be beter to use and what is the big difference between the chromecast and ultra Answer:
    The Ultra supports 4K video which is great if you have 4K sources and a 4K TV. If you don't have any 4K video sources and only a 1080p TV, then the regular chromecast 2 will be great

    Hi there. I would like to know if this will support 4k via Netflix. I have a 4k TV (Sinotec) which is a smart tv, but I don't like the interface and can't load Kodi onto it. Additional Q= Will this stream 4k via Kodi ? How does this compare to the Xiaomi Mi Box to perform the above tasks ? To summarise: I want to stream 4k content on either Kodi, Netlfix etc Answer:
    Hi Morne - This unit will do 4K on Netflix. Chromecast does not support Kodi (it supports Plex which is similar, but has less add-ons available). For Kodi, you will need a 4K android media player, but please note that all media players cannot support Neflix in 1080P or 4K. Like this: The only unit that can do both Kodi and Netflix in 4K is:

    Sorry another question do you need one Chromecast per device? Does it generate a wifi signal or does it provide an HDMI output for one 4K TV? We have a 4K Android TV Box, does it plug into the box or does it still plug into the TV? Answer:
    You will need a chromecast for each TV you want to use it with. It outputs through HDMI to your TV. Wifi is used to connect to the internet and your phone. It plugs directly into your TV HDMI port

    On my Samsung TV, we mirror video from a Huawei P10 plus. Video comes up in broken patches and is unclear. I was hoping to stream movies of showbox onto the TV. I have a Samsung series 3 TV with no smart capabilities. Not sure whether this device is worth getting to do the above? Answer:
    The reason that happens is because you are tying to "mirror" the video, rather than "pushing" the video to the TV. Download an app called "Allcast" or "Allconnect" or "Localcast" (try them till you find which one works best for you). Then from showbox, select that as your player and select your TV to play on. It will then play the stream directly on your TV so that there is no lag and patches etc and your phone will be free to use for other things. Doing it this way will also allow the chromecast to work excellently on your 2nd TV
