WTH. My TV, with a plugged in chromecast, just turned itself on and played music that definetely was not mine.
First thought was, that someone got into my network and was jerking around. A little later I figured out, that my mom started the playlist on her phone and somehow it triggered my cast und turned the TV on.

Seriously WTF

    HDMI-CEC + device that casts to chrome cast.

    This can be a great feature, but can lead to random turn-ons overnight with faulty devices.

    If the Chromecast is powered and plugged into the phone, you can just start casting and it'll turn the TV on and/or switch the channel.

    Thanks for your answers. Didn't know that the CC can turn on the TV by itself. But still strange, that the phone automatically streamed to it.

    Random turn ons..!! 🤔
    That would be something I wouldnt mind paying for.
