Casting option stopped after adding a new smart TV

Hi,

I've got LG smart TV and we've recently added a Sony Android TV. After the new TV has been set up, things like Chrome casting and youtube casting only recognise Sony TV. In order to cast youtube to LG TV we need to connect to it by a code from YouTube settings on TV. Anyone knows how can it be resolved?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions Happy

Without all model numbers...

...we can only guess wildly.

- LG 43UF640V

Here if I want to YouTube

I had to put in the code. BUT THAT IS DEAD NOW. Google changed YouTube and my old smart TV does not even launch the YouTube app. This is widely discussed, and some are flaming about it. I will not enter in the discussion except to write, Yep, that happened. Fix? Use a web browser like Amazon did.

The fact only the Sony is showing up could be a casting bug or the networking. Casting problems are legend and the few I fixed revolved around allowing the traffic over the router firewall. I disable that for testing. And the next thing was updating the firmware in the TV. Remember I never tell how to update. That's for the maker to tell since if I got a step wrong, the TV might have to be repaired. Only follow the maker's instructions.
