    Hi all
    I have several friends that think it's highly amusing to cast porn/youtube to my TV whilst I'm watching something else. Is their a way to stop these a-holes from ruining my viewing experience? Can't disconnect from the router as I generally watch Netflix etc. Thanks

    Assuming they are also connecting to the router? If so, block them bu either changing the password or denying their MAC address.

    Depending upon the router, you may be able to set up a 2nd network and prevent traffic between the 2. This will stop them casting to your TV but will still allow it to connect to internet services.

    You may also be able to turn off casting to the TV actually on the TV itself. Have a look through the options.

    Thanks man, turning off casting to the TV sounds the easiest option but can't find it in the options. Router is a V-Super Hub V2. I'm assuming I can only block their access at the router if I know the Mac address of their phone?

    You can normally work it out from the device list, as there's often a description of each device.
