I have 3 Chromecasts, 1 Google Nest Max and 1 Google Nest Hub (2nd gen) in my house.
I have the Google Cast integration installed in HA.
I see all the devices in HA.
My problem is that my Google Nest Hub entity has the status “Unavailable” and I can’t change that status.
Therefore I am not able to cast anything to that device.
Casting to the other devices is no problem.
Anyone any idea how I can solve this?
The simple options:
- Restart device
- Reload Cast integration
- Restart Home Assistant
Can you cast from other sources or is it just Home Assistant?
Have you looked into network issues?
I have done all 3 suggestions, but without result.
I can cast to the Google Nest Hub from all other sources withou any problem.
It is also available in the Google Home app.
Only in HA the device is unavailable.
I have moved the nest hub to the first floor of my house and now HA sees it and is able to cast dashboard.
I don’t understand it, but the problem is solved.
Thx for your help.
