Two Chromecasts not showing up in Devices list but casting works fine

chromecast

#1

Hi,
I'm trying to setup my home automation detecting two different Chromecasts, but while others see their different Chromecasts coming up with their device names on the Devices (Settings-->Devices). But mine are not showing there at all?

I am able to cast from any web app computer (W7 & OSX) and Android phones.

Using Plex on a Synology DS416 Play and two older model Chromecasts

Just tested a new Ultracast as well, and this is showing the name as "Chromecast" as well (instead of it's name I gave it).
When running op laptop via Chrome it shows "Plex Web (Chrome)" as expected.
I just tested the direct API and it also showed above results (so has nothing to do with my home automation).

http://ChomecastIP:8008/ssdp/device-desc.xml is actually showing Woonkamer, and no mention of name or fallback "Chromecast"

Anyone any idea?
I got PMS Version 1.5.3.3580-4b377d295 running currently (no new version available through Synology)

Found out how to update, actually have PMS 1.8.4.4249 running now, same issue :(

Nobody having the same issue or able to help? Please? I'm desperate :smile:

Am I using this forum wrong? If so, could anyone point me to any rules how to ask for support?
