off your vpn when u wanna cast.
vpn shouldn't affect casting as long as the devices are connected on the same network/subnet.

check router's AP isolation setting. it should be turned off..

No experience with casting issue but VPN prevented my stv from seeing my network drive even thomthey are on the same network.

Anyone using Nvidia Sheild for Singtel cast? I tried 2 different methods.

1. Play directly via app installed on Nvidia Shield
Result: slightly laggy refresh rate. Watching football can see that it's not smooth.

2. Play on my iPhone and cast on Nvidia Shield via Chromecast.
Result: good resolution. Smooth frame rate. No issues but video is about 15 seconds behind "live"

I run both on the same WiFi network. It puzzles me why casting from my phone yields a better result that running the app directly. Does anyone else have this problem?
because the app is not optimised for Android TV OS devices.

which version of cast are you running on shield? installed from shield's playstore?

it appeared that you are using screen sharing/mirroring or using sort of transcoding. normally chromecast has no such problem, and can even off the phone after casting without affecting the video on shield.

I downloaded the latest Singtel cast from Google play store. The video was a bit laggy.

Yes my Netflix and Amazon Prime video is not working. There's supposed to be a hotfix for it which you have to apply for and they will send via Ota. I have not received it yet though.

I have no issues with streaming services like Netflix or prime video. Only problem is with the streaming apps which I sideloaded. But i guess it's expected as they are not officially listed on the play store
