Can someone tell me if Now Boost is streaming live sport at full 1080p HD on the Google TV Chromecast dongle?
I have an lg TV and don't get the full streaming rate of 50fps with boost. The Info on the now TV website isn't very helpful, lists up to Chromecast version 3 and Chromecast ultra being able to stream in full hd at 50fps but doesn't mention about Chromecast with Google TV which is effectively Chromecast gen 4.
I know we don't have an app on Google TV but we can still stream, I've noticed slight difference in pic when I stream live sports to the Google TV but not fully convinced it's 50 fsp.
If someone could clarify for me would be great
No don't think you have read my post correctly.
The latest Chromecast which is effectively gen4 has the new Google TV interface. This is called Chromecast with Google TV. The guidance on the now TV website doesn't mention this whatsoever that it's supported for boost. This new Chromecast was released about a year ago and comes with a remote and new Google TV interface that replaces Android TV.
It mentions gen 1 & 2 Chromecasts aren't supported but gen 3 and ultra are supported for boost. No mention of the Chromecast with Google TV.
Android TV software or the new Google TV software interface built into a TV by various manufacturers isn't what I'm referring too, just to clarify.
I can't clarify but I think I have the same issue on Chromecast with Google TV HD 2022. Sports channels seem to be streaming at 1080p 25fps even though I have Boost. Doesn't seem as good as on my old 3rd Gen Chromecast. Incidentally the Now app does give me the surround sound option that comes with Boost.
