    (Updated)OK no devices found at all. I have two google home devices (Mini and Hub) + TV, all in the same network.Other casting apps are working fine. I installed beta Autocast(1.6.0.beta) on a new android(8.1.0) Phone.
    My Node Red server works with IP's from these devices.
    Tired of trying Autocast discover by itself, I wonder if i can modify the settings manually in the Autocast app to set the correct IP to finally get this thing working.
    Thanks

    Hi. Sorry for the delay. Does AutoCast still not discover the devices for you?

    Yes. Zero.
    btw I've already browsed the forum and elsewhere but no cigar.

    Can I edit the DB or the other config file to manually insert the devices IP's?

    Unfortunately you cannot right now, sorry! :( Weird that you're not seeing the devices automatically!

    There's some log where i could find more info? I suspect some authorization or permission gone bad.

    Maybe something you blocked in Google Play Services? Is your device rooted? Sorry, that's all I can think of...

    No rooted.
    I'll see that sometimes the google home mini is not detected as well in other castings apps, also i saw variations if the wifi network is inside a Wifi-extender, also router behaviour, etc. The reliability of the casting thingy makes me to decided to use node red server, write the IP manually and fully working.
