Snapcast connection problems

Hi together,

i hope someone can help me on this.
I installed Snapcast server on the same pi as homeassistant. Snapcast itself works and streams music to the Snapcast clients, but i am struggling getting snapcast integrating in to HA, somehow the connection doesn’t work.
Here is my configuration:

  - platform: snapcast

In the Snapcast server logs I can see this:

[Notice] ControlServer::NewConnection:

HomeAssistant shows this:

ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.components.media_player] Error while setting up platform snapcast
Traceback (most recent call last):

    return self._transact(SERVER_GETSTATUS)
  File "/home/homeassistant/.homeassistant/deps/snapcast/", line 349, in _transact
    raise Exception('No response received')
Exception: No response received

So does someone know what the problem could be?

I would really appreciate an idea, thanks :wink:

I’ve the same issue. It seems that the hardcoded timeout in python-snapcast is too short. There is also an issue with 0.11 and this library:

I have the same issue as well did some one sorted this out?
