Yes, iOS does not support device audio casting. Great that it works on your Nexus. Too bad Google has stopped selling any Nexus tablets
The only tablet they sell now is the Pixelbook, which runs ChromeOS .
I use to have the exact same issues and the worst device by far was the LG. The iPhone always been the best but was still problematic.
On the LG, when it finally starts to cast, it often continue to play from the phone as well. At this point, controls on the phone have no effect on what is casted (ie. impossible to skip forward).
Hmm.. Interesting. Which apps did you have this issue with ?
I red that all your CCAs are hard wired. It should not be a WiFi or bandwidth issue but maybe a routing issue ?
Definitely not a bandwidth issue. 7 are hardwired to the router via Gigabit switches.
8 are on Powerline AV1200 interface -TP Link TL-PA8030P.
Actually, I have 15 CC, not 14.
I am very happy with my Ubiquiti edgerouter. For 60$ Cad it was a no brainer.
Good luck with your system, at this point, you might want to try a better router.
You could still use your actual routers as dumb Wifi access points and let the routing job to a dedicated router.
just a suggestion ...
I currently have a Netgear R7000 as wired router going to my ISP.
And use 3 x Orbi (RBK50/2x RBS50)for Wifi access points. But Wifi is not in the picture with the Chromecasts.
I have tried the Orbi as router instead of R7000, taking the R7000 completely out of the picture.
When all the CCAs were on Wifi, it made things worse . Devices kept disappearing. They only all showed with a single router (RBK50 router, no RBS50 satellite) which defeated the point of the Orbi.
But even with a single RBK50 or R7000 as Wifi router, the system wasn't very reliable when all CCAs were on Wifi. That is why I went to wired & Powerline instead.
I think the remaining problems are likely related to bugs in the apps on the device and/or Google cast services software ...
When I use device audio casting, everything is much more reliable.
