Can I cast from the TV UI

I have an Android TV box it runs on a 2nd monitor and I cast to the main tv. Plex Recently asked me to try the TV UI(instead of the normal touch UI) I like it but the option to cast is gone. Is there a way to cast from the tv interface? or will I need to go back to the touch one?(also I cant see an option, without reinstalling)

  • are you saying not from the TV UI or not from a TV.
    As I'm not trying to cast from a tv, but from an android box running plex to a tv(well a chromecast plugged into a TV).
    it works fine using the touch UI, but the TV UI works better with the remote I use to control the box.

  • I can cast from the version of the app I am using, it is only the UI I am asking about.
