Hi All,

 

I want to watch something on TVNZ on demand so I installed the app on my android box, it says it wont work on a rooted device.

 

Plan B - can I run an app to cast from my laptop to the android box.

 

I am not able to find anything to do this. Does anyone know of a way to do this?

 

If worst comes to worst I could connect the laptop to the TV but not keen on that.

 

I dont was to buy a chromecast just for one show.

 

TIA

 

John

The Android TV box I have already has Chromecast functionality built in (MiBox).  So I can't test this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.koushikdutta.cast.receiver&hl=en

 

Thats got to be worth a go.

 

Edit:

 

Did a search on my AndroidTV box and this one came up: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ionitech.airscreen&hl=en  Seems a bit more feature complete.
