For several years now, I've enjoyed listening to (paid) Pandora on my various Roku devices (Roku 3 and now Roku Ultra). ~2 months ago the Roku Ultra and Pandora pairing were for some reason lost, and now it is impossible to re-pair them. Roku supports confirms this issue, so I've had to resort to casting Pandora from my Android Galaxy S20 phone to my Sony Android TV.
This worked for a few weeks, but now I have playback issues when the Pandora app connects to the TV:
The app and the TV are connected, but the music won't auto-play.
When #1 happens, hitting the play button on the Pandora app on the phone doesn't start the music. Neither does hitting pause and then hitting play again. The music never starts, and the time display never shows the song duration change (e.g. maybe it's playing and I can't hear it, but the time index would at least show that the music was playing)
When I can connect, whatever song is playing is stopped and Pandora jumps to the next song. The same thing happens when I disconnect the cast session - Pandora jumps to the next song.
I'm quite frustrated at the Roku channel issue on Roku, and now my workaround isn't working.
