Samsung A3 only detecting one of 3 Chromecasts

Hi guys, this has been an intermittent issue for some time and I'm finally sick of it. Basically, my phone (Samsung A3) will occasionally detect all chromecasts, but more commonly only sees "Bedroom TV", and doesn't detect the other 2. All are up to date, all are on the same network, and no one else's device seems to have this issue (My son for example is currently casting Shanties in the living room). Other apps (Netflix etc) also only find Bedroom, so it's not a problem exclusive to Google Home. Restarting my phone / the chromecast / the router doesn't seem to help. Again, other devices do not seem to have this issue.
Any suggestions would be great!

UPDATE I just tried resetting the router in case this was a router issue, and all 3 Chromecasts are now visible.

Welcome to Android Central! Have you already tried resetting each Chromecast and setting them back up again?
