    I have a Tivo Roamio and I have issues casting youtube videos from my Android or Ipad, I tried searching in Google and could not find a solution. The app works if I open and search for videos but casting does not work.

    I also updated to the latest software with one pass on it. It still does not work, Can some one please help me with this.

    Thanks.

    What do you mean "casting does not work"? Do you see Roamio listed in the list of castable devices in the Youtube app? Does casting result in an error?

    I cast from my iPhone all the time with no issues.

    I dont see my Roamio as a list of devices available to cast. It is driving me nuts... How are you casting it? Have you paired your phone with a code or do you just cast automatically without pairing any devices?

    I have two minis and it does not appear to have any problems.

    I just posted a similar. Didn't know the word "casting", I said streaming.

    Anyways from the YouTube app on my iPad, it shows my oppo bluray and my premiere, but not my roamio pro.

    Shows same on my iPhone 6 plus.

    Not sure if my roamio ever showed up before.

    Ok, I've gotten it to work but not obvious if roamio has to be done this way and premieres don't?

    I kind of did like this: http://www.cnet.com/how-to/pair-your-youtube-app-with-an-xbox-360/

    I went into the YouTube app on my iPad and went to settings->connected tvs->add a TV
    Then I went into the YouTube app on the TiVo and went to settings->pair a TV and entered the code on the iPad.

    It shows up as YouTube TV and allows you to cast to it, but as soon as you disconnect, you have to do this again. So it's a pain if you ever want to cast to some other device. If you disconnect you see the other devices but no longer have the TV cast in the list.

    I can cast from my iPad Air 1 and I did nothing to set it up. I just saw the option in YT one day, tried it and it worked.

    True, the configuration is a pain. When we have friends at home they uses to access our now playing list without any configuration. But now it is not possible.

    I had this very same issue with my Roamio. I was able to get it working again by running a low level format or write zeros (full delete) on the hard drive.
