jonolynn: I've got 2 Chromecast working with my Plex server and it's great. Wife Acceptance Factor (WAF) was low for a start not being able to use the universal remote anymore but it has subsided over time.
I'm hoping for a new Apple TV at some point that supports Apps (like Plex) and other new stuff and then I will consider replacing the Chromecast in the lounge.
Plex Android plays very nicely with the Chromecast with Play/Pause button on the lock screen, iOS is a bit annoying as you have to launch the app to get the controls and cannot control from the lock screen.
richms: My fire tv has largely replaced my but it seems my tv will of ever see 3 hdmi cec devices so have removed the chromecast for now.
You can cast youtube to the fire tv even better than the chromecast since you can then pause/skip etc either with the tv or the fire tv remote. Whereas the chromecast you have to re open the youtube app and hope it doesn't lose your tv play list.
