After receiving the update Cast to Device does not appear to be working properly. When I right-click on the file and select Cast to Device (formerly Play To), the appropriate window pops up (Windows Digital Media Controller Application), the XBox goes to Videos, and both show Connecting. That's it, it doesn't continue to play the file. The Cast to Server file is also present in Task Manager, but it doesn't appear to be connecting.
Things I've tried:
1) Forgetting and refinding the XBox server from my PC
2) Using Troubleshoot for Hardware and Devices
3) Playing videos from the new Movies and TV app (it also says it is connecting but never does)
4) Hard reboots on both PC and XBox
Is there a certain .exe file I can add or delete? I haven't gotten around to recognizing some of the newer operating files but with Windows 8.1 if I deleted Windows Digital Media Controller Application from Task Manager, the XBox would go back to the Video home page. Now it still stays stuck in the Connecting screen, which makes me think there's another file running that I could delete and cut the connection.
Hope someone can help! I don't want to revert but this is how I use my XBox the most so I might.
