Hi all.  Just wanted to give back a little.

I am testing out my new Google TV Chromecast:

https://store.google.com/product/chromecast_google_tv

I can confirm that it actually works PERFECTLY with the flirc!  I am running with one of these USB C dongles:

That model isnt available anymore but I am sure it would work with most any other similar dongle.  The important thing is that it has the power delivery (PD) port.  You are going to want a really good power supply that is rated for high-amps, like the ones meant for the Raspberry Pi 4 as using the included one or a generic one you might having lying around did not work (the device boots to a power error screen):

I have the power supply plugged into the USB C PD port in the dongle, the flirc in one of the usb ports and an Ethernet cable so I can turn off wifi on the CC.  I then plug the output into the CC.  All is good.

For programming, I am running a URC MX-980 remote and use a generic set of IR codes in its database.  I programmed the "NVIDIA Shield" buttons  which gets me all of the nav control of the included CC remote including u/d/l/r/back/home.  I also programmed the "Full Keyboard" which also works well.  And "Media Keys" also works so you get play/ff/rw/skip+/skip- which are not on the included remote.

I think I found my go-to streaming device!
