Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Those beautiful pictures are generated by the chromecast device when in standby so your tv is on the correct input (what you call channels)

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Now what you need to do is connect to your device with your PC ,

What are you trying to cast at this point ?

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Remember that only the chrome browser will cast movies or webpages on your device .

Have you done the first time setup ?

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Do you see this (picture below , click the link) on your chrome browser ?

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

In any case as far as the tv is concerned you are on the correct input (channel) when you see those pictures , do not touch your tv , your chromecast is waiting for you to cast on it .
