You probably won't get any MC help during the weekend. Try Monday

Hi chrisc

Sorry for the hold up.

Airplay is available on the DSTV Now App.

Select the Airplay feature on your iPad/iPhone (this will automatically appear as an option depending on your phone and if you have the right equipment), i.e Apple TV.

Default Google Home Support

OK, so we arrived back in SA Thursday evening armed with a (third) Google Home and a pair of Chromecast dongles.

Everything has set up fine and quickly and I am able to cast Netflix, You Tube, Spotify to My Lounge TV. I can cast from my phone or from Google Home.

(I am also controlling TP-Link Smart Light Bulbs both here in Sandton and at our place in Kent from the Kasa mobile app and, of course with voice commands to Google Home -- but I digress)

I can cast Showmax to the Chromecast with no issues at all from my Galaxy S7 Edge but, and this is the real question for this post, I can't get Google Home to cast Showmax content to the Chromecast.

Interesting She (they are all female and with nice neutral English accents), seems to know about Showmax because the error message she states is "I've looked for (content name) on Showmax but it either is not available or can't be played at the moment"


If she did not recognize Showmax as a valid content source she would have given a different message such as "I don't understand" or "Sorry, I can't do that".

Has anyone else played with Google Home? and Showmax casting?
MC Grace I've sent you a PM relating to this post.

Cheers, K.
