About a year ago I started a thread about Chromecast not working on the Nova. A lot of people kindly commented and I tried a few things. But I never got it to work. Now, after several firmware updates, I figured I would try again. Here goes…
On the Naim app I can see in the settings (sources tab) that Chromecast has an IP address. So I guess it is at least a bit alive.
When I try to select Chromecast from the front display of the Nova there is no Chromecast option.
Inside the Naim app on Android phone Chromecast is available, but when I select it, it automatically reverts back to the previous source. BTW: I have tried several Android devices including tablets and new phones.
In Google Home app the Nova does not appear as an optional device to stream to. Likewise in Spotify app. Even when I search for ‘new devices’ it does not appear.
All devices are on the same WiFi network.
We want to play some podcasts etc. But have to use our TV and Amazon Fire as this works. Seems nuts to have to leave the TV on to listen to podcasts when the Nova is supposed to be Chromecast compatible. If the Amazon Fire works… why not the Nova?
