Google announced it released the latest firmware 1.19a.63621 to all of its Chromecasts. This firmware fixes the following issues:
- Screen is black when audio worked while casting
- Subtitles cut off screen while casting
- TV input would randomly switch input triggered by CEC
Most of these issues were reported on the Google Cast Help Forum between March early May. However, some of these issues appeared to be caused by the 1.18 firmware update that was launched in March 9th. The good news is that Google is still committed to resolving bugs and updating firmware for the first generation gen Chromecast for all you who are still holding off on buying a new one. Of if you are like me who are using both the 1st and 2nd gen Chromecast as they both still work find on other TV’s.
