Ever since the DDoS, watching Crunchyroll via Chromecast has been hit or miss. Randomly, the Chromecast will drop out of a video and go to the Crunchyroll "ready to cast" screen without any input from my phone or PC. When it does this, I have to disconnect the phone or PC from the Chromecast and reconnect for it to work again.

Also, I seem to be having some major buffering issues when playing through Chromecast. This is only on the Chromecast, however, as I can play the same content on my PC at the same resolution with no issues.

Same issues. I have this both on my phone and from my iPad. No issues when streaming from PC last night.

To add to the list of items, the Crunchyroll app fails to detect the Chromecast unless it was recently connected to by another app, waking it up (so to speak) on the network. I can do this by launching the Youtube app on either device, connect, disconnect, and then my Chromecast is visible from CrunchyRoll. In my case, however, the app gets stuck at a buffering screen, rather than dropping to the "Ready To Cast" screen. Additionally, when this occurs, I am again unable to view my Chromecast from either my Android or iPad device until connecting with another app or my desktop PC.

Edit: I have also switched Wi-Fi networks, just to confirm it wasn't a specific router (I have 3 in-house), as well as assigned a local static IP, switched from using the USB power on said Wi-Fi router to using the AC adapter provided, switched from direct HDMI to using the extender (documented to increase Wi-Fi performance).
