I was facing the same problem. I found out the problem was because the latest "ember-rails" gem added a custom adapter for you, you need to set the "plurals" for that adaptor, but screencast set the config for the default one.
The simple solution is to delete the line adapter: DS.RESTAdapter.create() and force app to use default adaptor, and it should work
