Love the show,
In your latest issue you had a user ask about playing the same audio to two different Chromecasts from one pc. This can easily be done using a piece of software called Airparrot 2. Also you can stream the same video feed to multiple Chromecasts with this software or something different to each one. I am currently testing this as a cheap solution for digital signage and have displayed to 5 tv’s simultaneously.
Hope this helps.

@bogointeractive tweets Would you still build your own machine or buy prebuilt. I ask this as my Dell is crapping out.
