I installed HA in a Python virtual env on a 2013 Mac Pro, and it works like charm. Except for HomePods and Google mini.
At first it discovered them correctly (I have 1 Google mini, 2 HomePods and 2 HomePods mini). I was able to see what was playing and I tried to play radio stations on them. It worked.
However not even a day later for some reason they went missing.
HA can’t seem to find them anymore.
It’s almost as if they have been put in a black list of some sort…
The only thing I did, and frankly I don’t remember if the media devices went missing right after I did it, is that I added a media folder in the configuration.yaml file.
I removed the integration, I restarted HA, rebooted the Mac, rebooted the HomePods.
I logged online but couldn’t find exactly the same problem.
Logs don’t show anything helpful.
