hi guys, 

 

 

 

has anyone recently have set up a google home mini?

 

I had no luck getting it up and running, at the end of setup it hang in downloading the initial update. light on mini move from left to right.

 

according to google help page, lgith from left to right indicates the mini is downloading or installing updates. 

 

i leave it there for a hours, still no change.

 

since the mini has no visible output, im kinda stuck not even kowning where to start to troubleshot.

 

 

 

anyone had the same experience? or could point me to the correct direction?

Sam

Every time I've had problems with mine it's come down to DNS. Are you using a Pi Hole or Geo-unblocking DNS?
