Your cast device should show the name that was created when you configured Chromecast for the first time.
Security Note: When configuring Chromecast, it will ask if you want to turn Guest Mode on or off. You should keep Guest Mode turned off to prevent customers from casting their devices. When Guest Mode is off, only devices connected to the same wi-fi network can cast. Therefore, you also want to make sure that your wi-fi is password protected. Do not use an open network.
HDTV Picture Size: If your TV has a picture setting, be sure to set the size to Native mode.
