    I have a Chromecast stick and wherever the device is plugged in it can be identified and casts can be sent to it. Currently, Google TV can directly accept limited types of casts (like from You Tube) without the Chromecast device connected. I have more than one Google TV and I have been able on my Android phone and tablet to label the specific Google TV that I want to receive the cast. When using my computer the Google TVs are also found, but they are each just listed as Google TV. From the computer I have not been able to find a way to label each like I have from my phone and tablet. Is there a way to name each specific Google TV from a computer?

    Hi,

    No. Google TV is not (yet) a Google cast device. Casting YouTube (only) from Android phone/tablet to GTV option is been around before Chromecast stick, I'd just consider it a special GTV feature ...
