    We saw the Chromecast icon on our mobile devices before we had to factory reset the unit to get it to work again.

    I've checked a zillion times and all updates have already been applied.

    how do we get the Chromecast enabled on the Revue again?

    What do mobile devices have to do with the Revue?

    GTV doesn't have Chromecast functionality built-in.. What GTV supports is using the android YouTube app to act as a remote control to fling your YouTube videos to your GTV. You need to make sure that your GTV and android device are on the same WiFi network to see the TV icon. Try rebooting your router. You can also use your android device as a remote control for Netflix on your GTV (see links below).

    You can also try using the Google TV remote app:

    or the Able Remote app. (You install Able Remote on your android device and Able Remote for GTV on your GTV device):

    thanks for the extra info & putting two and two together.

    to be clear, I was using the official YouTube app on an iPhone 5 and before we factory reset, the Chromecast icon previously had 2 items: our Chromecast and our Revue.

    now our Chromecast is only listed.

    anything we need to do to reenable it?

    Make sure Revue is turned on, that both your iPhone and revue are on the same WiFi network and that you have the latest version of YouTube on your phone.

    Did you try pairing mobile devices from the Revue YouTube app? When in the YouTube app, just select menu options and pair mobile devices and follow the instructions.

    Whatever it is you were doing from your mobiles devices with the Revue, it isn't really Chromecast although it may work similarly for YouTube. You might have noticed that Netflix, Hulu Plus, HBOGo or whatever other Chromecast apps you may have been using didn't work with the Revue but would work with Chromecast. Like CatfishRivers stated, the Revue doesn't have Chromecast functionality.
