Chrome cast did the 10% circle going to 100% when turned on so guess it was updating.

Now when I run Lightbox on my iphone6 I can't get the square with the wifi signal in right corner of phone.

I have turned phone on and off, deleted and reinstalled Lightbox on phone and still no success.

Yet Netflix and Youtube applics on Phone cast fine, so guessing not a network problem on my side.

On Spark fibre and just using Sparks DNS settings.

As far as I know not much has changed for me, router rebooted.
But no Chromecast on lightbox from note 5, worked last night.
YouTube/Spotify both all good.
It crashes alot, but love Vikings and black sails, time to find my old iPad to try that I guess.

Same issue here,


Note 5 to Chrome cast worked fine last night but today the Chrome cast icon is gone :-(


I've rebooted everything and uninstalled/reinstalled Lightbox but no joy.


Chrome cast works fine in all other areas I use.


Can't Airplay and now this.


Ouch. Hopefully this gets fixed soon.

I thought I'd give the android app a whirl on my Note II - I haven't used this app for a long, long time. It won't load at all, I briefly get a spinning circle, then an error message (screenshot below). Once I clear the message the app just stays on the spinning circle but never actually does anything.

I'm rooted and run the xposed framework. I put Lightbox into the rootcloak module. No difference. I've cleared cache & data via ROM Toolbox. No difference. I've run the ROM Toolbox 'fix permissions' script. No difference.

No biggie for me but I'd imagine it's a big problem for people who rely on casting to get svod to their tv.

Exactly what I had, in application manager I cleared data and relogged in and that fixed it ( also reset my IP with unotelly ).

I had this problem last night. Have just installed a new Chromecast 2 on our main tv (moved the Chromecast 1 to our other tv).


The problem occurs when casting from my iPad Air to the Chromecast 2 on the main TV. I don't get the Chromecast icon inside Lightbox.


It does work ok with the iPad Air to the Chromecast 2 and casting from Youtube.


So the Chromecast connection is functional, just not being picked up in Lightbox.

Had this issue last night too and complained via their Twitter account (as did many others!). Appears the issue is now fixed as per: although I'm not at home at the moment to test

Just tested and it's back on iOS. :)
