Start with the TV and Chromecast remote

Note: You can move through the menus and make your selections with the remote’s directional pad (D-pad)..

  1. Activate the television.
  2. Connect your Chromecast to the TV or other display device using an accessible HDMI input.
  3. The Chromecast’s power cable should go into an available wall socket, and the device’s end should go into the Chromecast.
    • The Chromecast supports Ethernet hookups if you so choose.
  4. Connect your Chromecast to a working HDMI port on your television or other screen.
  5. While waiting for the Chromecast and its remote to pair, you should change the TV’s input to the one that the Chromecast is using.
    • The majority of times, the remote will couple itself. If the TV screen displays “Start pairing,” however, pressing and holding the “Back” and “Home” buttons on the remote will cause the remote’s light to blink.
  6. Pick the language you wish to communicate in.

Continue with your phone

  1. Launch the Google Home app on your mobile device when prompted to do so by the TV screen.
    • Tap “Get Started” if you’re new to the Google Home app. Create the Google account you’ll use with Chromecast. To proceed with the house you’ve decided to utilise, then.
    • If you don’t want to use your phone, you can set everything up with the Voice Remote. Instead, go through the TV’s setup process by selecting TV Setup.
  2. Select the room in which you’d like to utilise Chromecast and tap “Set up Chromecast.” Now just hang tight as the app tries to locate your Chromecast.
    • The “Set up Chromecast” button should be in the upper left corner; if it isn’t, select “Add Set up device” You may now utilise your brand new, must-have gadget in the comfort of your own home.
    • Setup may be impeded by the current phone settings.
  3. To connect your Chromecast, open the Home app on your smartphone and allow it to use the camera. Scan the QR code displayed on your TV.
    • Instead of scanning the QR code, you can enter the setup code manually in the Home app.
  4. Once you get to the “Setup here is finished” screen in the Google Home app, you can move on to setting up your TV and remote.

Set up the Chromecast remote

You can see the remote’s status on the TV screen. If the remote has been programmed, you can move on to the final stage of TV and remote configuration.

Screen prompts such as “Control volume and power with your Chromecast remote” indicate that the remote control must be set up manually. It may be programmed to operate your home theatre components.

  1. Choose the option to programme the remote.
    • If you choose “Not now,” the remote’s settings can be configured at a later time.
  2. Select the manufacturer of your audio playback device and then press the volume up or down button to customise the volume controls. Keep the volume on your device turned up for when the screen reads “You’ll hear music next.” Choose Next to hear the tunes.
  3. If you want to adjust the volume while music is playing, just point your Chromecast control at the player.
  4. Click Yes or No and give it another shot under “Do the volume buttons work?”
  5. For the volume controls to take effect, the remote must be pointed directly at the device. The volume on your device may not be controlled via the remote on some models.
  6. To configure the power button, hit the off button on the remote, wait eight seconds, and then press the power button again.
  7. To answer the question “Did your TV switch off and on again?” you can either choose Yes or No and try again. To configure your TV’s input, press the input button on your remote to cycle among the available inputs.
  8. To test whether the input button is functioning properly, return the TV to the HDMI port where your Chromecast is plugged in.
  9. Click the “Did the input button work?” radio button for either “Yes” or “No,” then try again. Please take note that some TV models’ remotes do not allow you to change the input.
  10. This prompts the screen to read “Chromecast remote is ready.”
