    Hi
    I have a small home theater - a denon receiver connected to a projector and speakers. And have a BRay player connected.
    Now I want to play utube vidoes from ipad onto the receiver/projector combo.
    Where do i connect the chromecast on the receiver or projector?
    If I connect to an hdmi on recevier how to then display on projector?
    And if i connect to hdmi on projector then how to get sound?
    would prefer not to have to physicall connect the ipad anywhere.
    Is this possbile!! how?
    thanks

    I am using Chromecast with an AV Receiver. Just connect it to an open HDMI input, select that input on the AVR and it will work with the projector or other display. I do have an HDMI switch in between the Chromecast and AVR which places the Chromecast where I want it but a simple HDMI cable with female on one end and male on the other will allow placement where you want it if direct connection to the AVR isn't ideal.

    Sweet! I hope the OP will post if a successful connection is made. I can't see why it wouldn't work.

    But I am curious...

    It works, I am doing it, there is no reason it won't work assuming there are no HDMI incompatibilities or issues. The bad news is I can find no use for Chromecast as it is now.

    But what about the sound? If i simply do the above wont it just display on the screen? how to then get the sound too from the speakers connected to the receiver without having to physically connect the laptop anywhere?

    Chromecast passes the sound also but it does require HDMI audio processing. The AVR I use is an inexpensive Yamaha RX-V471 with HDMI audio processing and video switching. The audio/video is being played by the Chromecast, the laptop doesn't need to be connected by HDMI.
