I have a Philips 50PFK6550/12 TV, and a Nexus 5X running Marshmallow. When I try to cast the screen of my Nexus to the TV using the Cast button in the notifications menu, the cast app crashes on my TV:

Unfortunately, Chromecast Android Shell has stopped.

I can then report this error. If I view the stack trace, it says:

java.lang.securityException: Cast mirroring is not enabled.

Trying to cast a tab from Google Chrome on my desktop gives the same error.

Is there some way I can make this work, or is this something Google/Philips needs to fix?

  • Settings > Display > cast > 3 dots on the top right > Enable wireless display. Is that On? – blueren Jun 27 '16 at 11:29
  • Thanks! I don't have the 'Enable wireless display' option there, only 'Help & feedback'. I do see the TV, but connecting makes the app on the TV crash. – nhaarman Jun 27 '16 at 11:31
  • Oh so you mean to say the Chromecast crashed. Sorry. I though something derped on the phone. Worth resetting the chromecast, though. Is it updated to the latest version? – blueren Jun 27 '16 at 11:33
  • Yeah well, the TV runs Android, and has 'native' chromecast support. That crashes. I have tried to reinstall the cast app and do a factory reset of the TV. – nhaarman Jun 27 '16 at 11:34
  • Would this help? Reddit page – blueren Jun 27 '16 at 11:41

I bought a separate Chromecast. This works fine.
