Hey there so my Walmart has a bunch of these kits on stock. Clearanced. Normally $74.

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Google-.../719650769

Okay this is my first time using it, and I'm thoroughly impressed. I don't have a smart TV and this linked up with all my smart displays. My toddlers already figured out how to use it within 10 minutes lol. I love it.

It doesn't work without phone connected and be present all the time while movie/show is going on.. any one knows?
If you're simply casting your entire phone screen that's how it works, but if you're casting from an actual app you can start playback with your phone and then turn your phone off if you want. A lot of TV's can even control pause/play with the TV remote.

I see.
So initial request must be made from phone to Chromecast and thereafter Chromecast device which is connected to tv as well as directly to WiFi performs download and play on tv (with few TV's supporting with there own remote functions like pause play etc or using Chromecast app from phone). Is this correct?

Also will mini be able to audio out instead of tv ? Or that's just separate to speak to and listen function nothing to do with tv and Chromecast?

With the home mini, you can tell it that you want to watch 'xyz' on 'x tv' and it'll turn on the tv and go to whatever you want to watch. No phone necessary. You can even tell google to change channels or raise lower volume and turn off the tv.

Yea that's basically it. You can control playback with your phone with whatever app you're casting from, or with the TV remote if your TV supports HDMI-CEC and it's turned on (manufacturers usually have some special name for HDMI-CEC).

You can't cast the video to a TV and the sound to the Mini (probably wouldn't want to anyway), but you can tell the Mini to cast certain things to the TV through the Chromecast. I tell my Mini to play different YouTube videos on the TV (through my Chromecast), and it'll turn the TV on, switch to the right input, and start playing.

You can also cast music/podcasts to the Mini and listen through that.

Doesn't look like. 4k HDR supporting Chromecast has G written on lower side of device where as older (1080p ?) has G embossed on center area as per picture on this deal.
here's 4k HDR Chromecast on Walmart which alone is 70 bucks.

3rd gen, non ultra 1080p. So you'll get the newer Wi-Fi chip which is nice.
