 I am using an android 10 device, I have also tried using and alternative device. and I'm having issues on removing ghost device. My MiBox S and smart TV are no longer linked to my google account and it is still showing as linked on my phone on the assistant devices tab. There is no option to remove the device. As time pass bay the same device is showing and it keep adding/ Duplicate. It is really unpleasant to see that there are still device showing even it already been unlinked to the google home and removed it on the other device. 

I really need to have this sorted ASAP. 

I have already send a feed back on this however there is no answer at all



Once I select the MIBOX 4 or ADI's TV. It show only this options.

I can't also select the add device address it showing as disable.

I almost lost my mind trying to figure out what to do. It seems that the only way to remove ghost devices from assistant is to un-link this while you still have the device, powered on. This means that if you already sold the zombie device then you're out of luck unfortunately. I had no use for MIBOX anymore as I bought a tv with built-in chromecast so I just had to put it away. Initially, I couldn't command the new tv to shut off as my google assistant still recognizes MIBOX which wasnt connected. Regardless if I say 'turn off the tv' or 'turn off the family room tv' (nickname for my new tv), it wouldn't. Google should update the settings that allows users to unlik any devices, active or not.

Same problem. I have an Android TV that I don't want linked because it always takes precedence when I tell any google device to "Turn off the TV." Pretty frustrating. Hopefully google can fix this.

I have the same problem with my mini second gen. It still shows up on the device list. I did a factory reset , no luck. Although when you check  on  the devices linked to your google account it doesnt show up, but still this is frustrating.

SAME ISSUE.  I still have the TV, but it exists 4 times with 3 different names.  So, even if you have the device, you cannot unlink it from the devices as far as I can tell because adding it back with the name just creates a new copy.

In my case, it is a SONY Android TV.  I still have the TV,

Same problem in here. I have around 7 ghosting devices and I can't find a way to remove them.

How come there's no a remove button?
