Steps to reproduce

Since the Creators Update DLNA devices do not show in the Cast media to device menu. Clicking Find other kind of devices just takes me to Settings/Bluetooth & other devices, where my DLNA device is listed as connected.
Casting from Windows Media Player(Cast to Device) works.
Edit: I tried another machine with Miracast support and my TV did show up, but when connected I got the desktop extended on the TV. So it wasn’t using it like DLNA device like before the Creators Update. I like this new feature but it would be great to also have the old behavior since it was quite handy for my older non Miracast enabled devices.

    • Same issue. After receiving Creators Update, Media casting thru Microsoft Edge is no longer functioning. My DLNA devices appear connected in settings, however, Edge doesn’t recognize any DLNA devices which worked perfectly prior to the update. I use the EDGE feature to provide multimedia instruction to Middle school students enrolled in afterschool programs. Please provide a solution ASAP. Thank you.

    • Same problem here, after creator update and a clean install.

    • I have the same problem. After the Windows 10 Creators update, the Cast media to device does not work on the microsoft edge browser. The TV connected to the network does not appear
