My Question or Issue
I have two Vizio Soundbars (SB4451-C0, SB3651). The cast stopped working about a month or two ago. I initially thought maybe a temporary glitch, but this has been broken since then. The soundbars are still listed as cast targets in the Spotify app on both Android and Mac. But it hangs on Connecting... for a while every time I try and then drop. The lights on the Soundbars indicated that some action started and then dropped. Every other casting app still works fine, including Youtube Music (I started a trail just for this). Many people reported on Reddit that they are having the same problem. If this doesn't resolve soon, I'm seriously thinking about switching to Youtube Music.
(I realized that this might not be the best place for the problem, but I don't seem to be able to find a better place, "Open Issues" will be the right home but I cannot create a topic)
Thanks fore reaching out and reporting this to us.
Apologies for the mix up, since the thread has started we've seen an increase in reports of issues with Vizio soundbars. We appreciate the time you took to report this and the troubleshooting you've done so far. We've gathered your feedback and forwarded it to the relevant team that has been investigating this.
It would seem that the issue isn't something that we can influence as this is dependent on how the device itself functions. We recommend that you reach out to Visio to check if there're any firmware updates that improve the cast functionality and to receive the best advice for your device.
Hope this info is useful. Let us know if there's anything else we can help with.
