Unable to ‘broadcast’ to smart display

Hi there,

 

For some reason I’m now unable to broadcast to my smart display from my google mini or google assistant mobile app. I can send a broadcast to my mini, however simply can’t receive them now. This was working the other week, however it seems since the new update it has stopped doing so. I have made sure that the settings are both the same according to my mini, but still encountering the same issue. 

 

If anyone has any advice that would be great. 

 

Thanks

Unable to Cast to Smart Display

Casting just stalls out on YouTube TV from voice or casting from phone. HBO also having trouble. Anyone else have this problem?

Re: Unable to Cast to Smart Display

Hi rykirk,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

May I know if you're also having the same issue when casting on a regular YouTube app? 

 

I've done some research regarding this and it appears that this is only compatible with android devices. The Lenovo Smart Display is running Google Home app.

Regards,

Hi @BuddieBoy,

 

Welcome to the Community,

 

Best thing to do is to remove your display from your Google Home App and then run a factory reset on device and reconnect.

Re: Unable to Cast to Smart Display

Loading YouTube TV, HBO, or YouTube via casting by phone or by voice commands seems to be performing better now. I put the smart display on a static IP, I think that may have helped the issue a bit?

Oh and to confirm what another user has said, broadcasting to the smart display from another Google Home does not work at all. Thank you for your time.

Thanks heaps Miguel. As annoying as it is to reset the device it still solved the issue.

Re: Unable to ‘broadcast’ to smart display

This is not a solution.  I unlinked the LSD from my google home app, performed a factory reset on the LSD, and then re-added the LSD to my Google Home.  Still unable to broadcast to the display.  I can play music and videos.

 

This worked initially.  Also, the LSD stopped announcing Nest Hello notifications and stopped displaying the Hello live stream.  This worked yesterday.
