Hello friends...

My brother is only a gamer in my house he plays the game up all night, Chromecast does an update or something and restarts every single night in the early morning. Therefore, it switches from PS4 to Chromecast and that can be bad. Is there anything I could do?

Hey, 


Yesterday I had some real trouble watching some old episodes of LOST. Beginning playback or seeking the stream would cause the Chromecast to reboot (black screen, google logo, wifi connecting screen...).
2nd gen Chromecast
Onkyo AVR
1080p Samsung TV
Latest NOW TV ap
Galaxy Tab 2
 The episode was LOST S01E05 I think.
 Each time this happened the app would think it was still casting, so I would have to tell it to Stop Casting, then reconnect. Time consuming and frustrating.
 After several attempts it managed to get going and I could watch fine.
 I have never seen this with any other apps on the Chromecast so I think it must be the NOW TV app.
