Description Of Issue

The Chromecast endpoint is intermittently available to select within the audio zones in Roon. Its the same on my PC and with the app on my Android phone. Sometimes it is there, and then I lose it. I’m not sure why.

I can connect to the Chromecast no problem from Spotify. It connect every time. I can also ping the Chromecast from my PC. But it doesn’t show up in Roon.

Hello @Nick_Solomon,

Some research suggests that the Virign Media Hub 3 can cause issues with Multicast networking, this is where I would start troubleshooting. You can see similar issues by google’ing “Virgin Media Hub 3 Chromecast” or “Virgin Media Hub 3 Sonos”.
