I can't cast from Ipad, android phone or google chrome anymore. Device is not showing up as a casting device anymore. :crying:
Anyone else with this issue?

The same for me. The Chromecast is still working, but the NP is not. I've also did a factory reset but the result is the same! The Nexus Player is not found in the device list in any of my devices.

I can only repeat what was said before me. Cast shows 'no devices available'. Also tried a factory reset since that is mentioned for earlier versions of android. But that did not work for me also.

Both of mine updated to 6.0. I was able to cast yesterday evening.. There was an update to the cast app about 2 or 3 days ago. Is your app up to date?

Only the Google Play Music sees the Nexus Player, but an atemp to connect to it fails. I've tried reinstalling the Google Cast Receiver, but there is no change.

Anyone have casting working since the 6.0 update? If so, what version of the Google Cast Receiver do you have?

Yea, same here, GP Music is the only app that sees the NP. Can't actually get a cast attempt to work though. But not even YouTube is able to see it. Netflix can't either. GP Music just got a recent update. Maybe that helped it to at least see the NP?

When I try and cast things using YouTube and such, nothing running 6.0 is seen.

Time for 6.0.1.

This is shameful for Google. You can't miss a bug like this, unless you totally failed to test.

And I have the latest Chromecast app, always have since it was released.

Casting worked for me for a week after updating to 6.0.

My devices no longer see the Nexus Player as a cast device after installing the most recent Oct 13 update of the Google Cast Receiver app, version 1.16.43955.

I've tried clearing the app data and uninstalling the update (reverting to 1.15) and there's been no change.

Please report back to this thread if someone finds a solution.

In the same boat. Purchased the NP yesterday and was able to cast last night while it was on 5.1.1. This morning I find that the NP updated to 6.0 and now it does not show up as a casting option. Didn't have much time to troubleshoot this morning, but did a factory reset and that had no effect.

Same problem. I will attempt to flash 5.1.1 back tonight to see if all is good. Isn't Google testing it's OS? This is some major issue they introduced with 6.0 on the Nexus Player (and possibly all of the Google TV devices running 6.0).

Probably not related to marshmallow, my android tv is still in 5.1.1

Interesting. When did yours stop working?

ETA: Your case is the only one that I have seen that had the trouble at 5.1.1. Everyone else (including me) had the issue in conjunction with the update to 6.0

    Same problem as everyone else...Was able to cast last night, this morning, casting was broken...

    I called Google before I found this thread... They said they were aware of the issue and are working on it
