    Maybe try restarting the Chromecast Bridge.

    I found the problem and a temporary solution. I remembered that earlier this week I had changed the LMS Network Streaming Mode for HTTP(S) in Advanced Settings from "Persistent" to "Cache on disk", which fixed a problem with the first track repeating infinitely when transferring a Qobuz queue from one player to another. So, on a hunch, I changed it back to Persistent and now the alarm works perfectly, just as before. Be aware that an LMS restart is required after changing the Streaming Mode. So it appears that, in the short term, I have to choose which problem I can live with. I think that, for now at least, getting out of bed in the morning is more important. In the meantime, I will do one more test with the "Normal Streaming" mode and see what happens there.

    Then you should be fine as long as you don't plan on transferring queues containing Qobuz playlists.

    **** And, to top it all off, I just changed the Network Streaming mode to "Normal streaming" and both of my problems are fixed --- Chromecast Bridge alarms work AND Qobuz playlists can be transferred without the first track repeating infinitely. WIN/WIN!!!!

    EDIT: I spoke too soon. My Nest Mini just dropped its connection in the middle of a song and playback stopped. "Persistent" mode would have prevented that. At least that takes care of 2 out of 3 problems. I guess we need a "Persistent with caching" option. ;-)

    That's fine until you play a podcast that doesn't play to the end unless "persistent" is used
    In my case I don't use Qobuz and I have never tried transferring a queue of Tidal tracks.

    Yep. See the edit on my previous post. It's back to "Persistent" for me.

    All the alarms are set to use random song mix from my server. If I switch to now playing, the classic works just fine.

    Hope someone can fix this please. 🙏
    If I then manually switch the classic on it plays tracks from my random song mix but doesn't switch off when the alarm elapsed time is reached. So it definitely doesn't know the alarm should be playing.

    Did you try restarting LMS?

    So the good new is that the alarm on my Chromecast bridge player (Google Nest Mini) went off this morning after changing the Network Streaming mode back to "Persistent". The bad news is that it didn't shut off after the 60 minute timeout value set in the prefs. This is starting to feel like a game of Whack-A-Mole.

    Just a quick update: The alarm on my Chromecast bridge player failed to go off this morning even with Network Streaming mode set to "Persistent", so it's starting to look more like a CC Bridge problem. In any case, I certainly can't rely on LMS alarms to wake me up any more. It's a good thing I'm retired, for that reason and countless others.

    Tried your advice. Got the backup alarm only. 😭
