I know it is not supported, but does it work OK, or is it a temperamental thing to get going? Trying to work out a cheap way to get lightbox on the TV without having HDMI cables dangling round the house.

I have tried other things casting and the result was as fluid as a powerpoint transition and had massive blur and tearing. I dont have lightbox to test sorry.

Did you search the forums? When I tried I think I could cast the entire screen which was laggy. Casting the tab didn't work from memory.

I tried a few days ago - doesn't work. The website casts ok, as you'd expect, but the TV screen just goes black when you start streaming video. About time to cancel my subscription, tired of waiting...

Fair enough. I searched and found some reports from when lightbox first came out that Chromecast was working with the service, but didn't want to go out and buy one as lightbox will have made a lot of changes since the beta and initial launch. It seems that if it was working once, it isn't any more. Cheers everyone. Will wait until lightbox launch an xbox 360 or set top box client.
