    Yeah, continue watching is hit or miss. Works on some items I watched thru the GTV interface, but not other items.

    Seems like a small issue that can be easily resolved.

    Hopefully it is a bug that needs to be fixed and not something that is being restricted by a specific app.

    How recommendations work
    Movie and TV show recommendations are based on what's popular or trending in Google products, what’s mentioned across the web, and what’s new to streaming services.

    If you’re signed in to your Google Account and have Web & App Activity turned on, Google’s recommendations are also based on your activity in Google products including:

    • Past searches and browsing history.
    • TV shows or movies you’ve rated.
    • Trailers you’ve watched on YouTube.
    • TV shows or movies you've clicked to watch on Google TV.

    Again, the way I figured Continue Watching in Google TV works is that the underlying apps on the Chromecast are simply communicating with the Google TV software on that device to say, "Hey, here's what's in my Continue Watching list." (Pretty much every app has a content list along those lines, regardless of what they call it. In Hulu, for instance, it's called "Keep Watching".) The metadata passed from the app to Google TV would include the title, the season/episode (in the case of a series), the amount viewed within the title, and probably the data and time at which the title was last watched. And then Google TV combines that info from all the different apps that pass along such data, in order to create a unified cross-app Continue Watching list.

    I don't think Google would be keeping that information on their servers anywhere. But the underlying apps keep it on their servers. If you start watching, but don't finish, a movie on Netflix or HBO Max on one device and then later open that app on a different device, you'll see that movie in the Continue Watching list inside the app on that device too.

    If it works that way then I would have expected a much larger "Continue Watching" list to show up. For example on Netflix I have about 5 or 6 shows in "Continue Watching" on Netflix app itself, but on Chromecast only has 1 now that I initiated watching through Chromecast itself. But that may be related to inconsistency being talked about above where some shows work and some don't, but so far I'm 4 for 4 on shows I started I initiated via Chromecast.

    Yeah something is definitely going on and Google isn't addressing this issue

    Has anyone who has connected the CCGTV to a GB wired ethernet port been able to obtain wired speeds above 100 MB?

    My Internet connection is 100 MB so I can't test for speeds greater than 100 MB and there is speculation that the wired speed on USB C hubs with GB ports might be limited with the CCGTV.

    If it's usb 2.0 based, wouldnt that be a given? Think the TS4k is in the same boat.

    Side question. Why can you not accomplish on it at 100gb speeds?

    I don't know that it is the case that the CCGTV is USB 2.0 based. It has a USB C port that is compatible with some USB C hubs. Most USB C hubs have at least one USB 3.0 port and I don’t know if they are fully supported as USB 3.0 ports on the CCGTV or downgraded to USB 2.0.

    The officially supported Google Ethernet Adapter is only 10/100 MB.
    It doesn't matter for my case since my Internet connection is 100 MB but I am curious if the CCGTV is able to support the full capabilities of GB Ethernet.

    I believe the chipset is capable of gigabit from what I was reading when we were talking about the chipset when it was officially released. Haven't really bothered to read up further. Where mine is, I'm using wifi which just had me thinking my mini pc has dual Ethernet, so I'm only a cable and hub away hopefully. . Have about four different hubs. Think I have 500mb service if I'm not mistaken.

    And edit... Nevermind. Two hdmi and one Ethernet. Will have to wait until I migrate it to the theater room. Sadly, Peloton no longer works on my Leeco TV and it's ancient Android, so I popped it on there.

    Guessing I'm not as hard core as some of you.... I don't pay attention to watch lists, recommendations and all that. I just go to the app I want to watch things. The 1.49 rental is nice. But there weee three other things I had to x out just to get to that. [​IMG]

    I was hoping to see the watchlist/library tabs is there a way to sort the watchlist, I know you said you don't use watchlists, but if you could test a few titles by adding to watchlist would be great thanks

    Not much help there as you can see. And hitting the center + does nothing. Guessing it's telling me I need to add things.

    Isn’t this what the Caavo device is doing, pulling in watchlists from the different services?
