Force Chromecast v2 to use 5 GHz with Hub One?
The Chromecast v2 supports 5 GHz but according to the Hub One homepage, it's currently using 2.4 GHz.
Does anyone know how I can force the Chromecast onto 5 GHz?

Yes it is possible.
Log into the Hub One by pointing a web browser to 192.168.1.254
Go to 'Advanced Settings' -> 'Wireless'.
Click on 5 GHz wireless tab
Change the 'Sync with 2.4 GHz' to 'No'.
Assign your new wireless SSID name. eg. ConnectionName-5GHz
Click on 2.4 GHz wireless tab
Assign your new wireless SSID name. eg. ConnectionName-2.4GHz
