        Also not seeing Chromecasts

        Hi both

        I've installed this plugin (on a new SEL-PRO with HS3) and I can't get it to see any of my devices.

        I've installed avahi-daemon with "sudo apt-get install avahi-daemon" via SSH and rebooted all devices. COnfirmed it's running with "sudo service avahi-daemon start" but still no luck finding devices.

        What am I doing wrong?

        Looked at the log and despite the avahi service running, I still get this:

          Could you tell me what files have been installed in bin/Chromecast?

          Code:
          ls bin/Chromecast

            No such file or directory

            The directory bin/Chromecast doesn't seem to exist!

            In the HS3 interface, the Chromecast plugin is installed and enabled and its status shows as "OK"

              that would be very weird... make sure you are in the homeseer directory before you enter the ls command.
              do you know how to ssh to your SEL?

              if bin/Chromecast does not actually exist you need to reinstall the plugin

                Is this the correct path?

                  no, the homeseer dir is /usr/local/HomeSeer

                  so:

                  Code:
                  cd /usr/local/HomeSeer
                  then

                  Code:
                  ls bin/Chromecast

                      So I've checked:
                      • avahi-daemon is installed and running
                      • chromecast plugin is installed and running
                      • bin/Chromecast directory contents are as above
                      • Mono.CSharp.dll and CSScriptLibrary.dll are in the bin folder
                      • my SEL-PRO and Chromecasts are on the same network
                      • I have restarted all devices


                      Still won't detect any of my Chromecast devices...

                        HST is working on the updater, and they messed up the Chromecast plugin on Linux. The windows version is installed instead of the Linux one. They are working on a fix.

                        You should manually delete the content of bin/Chromecast (especially Mono.Zeroconf.Providers.Bonjour.dll ) and then install manually from https://forums.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=191010 or wait for the updater to be fixed.

                        sorry for the inconvenience

                              from the command line from the HomeSeer folder try this:

                              Code:
                              sudo ./speak_to_file.sh Wave/test.wav "This is a test"
                              does it create a non empty test.wav file in the Wave directory?
