Cannot cast to Smart Home

2018-12-01, 18:28 PM

I set up my new Smart Home yesterday. No matter what I do, I cannot get the unit to appear as a casting option in apps like Netflix. It is just not there. I have started the install process over twice by restoring factory settings, but no change. Everything is on the same network and a Chromcast unit appears with no problem.

Solved! See the solution

I remember reading something about google home hub supporting casting except for netflix. Which may come later.

Lenovo, please add the option to cast Netflix! A device with a display that can't be used for #1 streaming service is incomplete.

This is down to Netflix, I'm afraid. They've not enabled streaming on any smart screens, including Google's Home hub

Also, Google provide the firmware / software and Lenovo make the hardware for the Smart Display, so there's definitely nothing Lenovo can do!

Screen mirroring via chromecast is broken too.

 

Lenovo: please stop adverising this as a chromecast enabled device until Google fixes it properly (including working with Netflix etc. to resolve any issues.)
