[pulseaudio-discuss] combined sink does not work with pulseaudio-dlna

I am trying to get sound output from the speaker plugged on my computer
and the Chromecast audio in the living room.

I have launched the program pulseaudio-dlna and I can hear audio on the
Chromecast when I select it as playback.

Next I run pacmd and type the following:

load-module module-combine sink_name=combined slaves=Chromecastaudio4076_chromecast,alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo

In pavucontrol I select the combined sink as playback. I can only
hear sound on the computer's speaker.

I have attached two screen shots. What's interesting in the output
devices tab is that there is activity in the Chromecast sink, the blue
line is moving as the music is playing.

Does anyone knows why it's not working as expected? Is there a different
way to make it work?

Have a nice day,
