Google Chromecast and scanning for WiFi Networks

I’ve been playing around with the Google Chromecast this evening. One of the things that I’ve just run across is that it appears to periodically scan for wifi networks. I’ll write more soon, but this is what I’ve found so far.

I sanitized the IP Address of the Chromecast, the BSSID’s and the SSID’s of the access points that the Chromecast found.
