    Hi All new here. Installed Autocast and created a routine which allows me to broadcast a message to my google home devices using an mp3 file. Works great but the problem i am having with the routine is it continues casting and i have to tell the specific group to stop verbally before it needs to re run succesfully.
    The statement i am playing around with in tasker is as follows.
    Under Configuration
    it lists the following
    Stopping AutoCast
    Cast Device: Home group Inside
    with a timeout of 30 seconds.
    Can someone please post what they have in regards to this routine as i cant see where else its going wrong.
    Other options are as follows.
    Cast Devie to cast on Is Home group inside. (I have also tried deselecting this)

    Start/Stop Service
    AutoCast Service unchecked (Check to start /Uncheck to stop)

    Keep Current Screen is also unchecked.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Can you try disabling A2 and A3 and see if that works?

    Just to confirm, everything's working except stopping the cast, is that right?

    Correct everything is working except stopping the cast.. The only way to stop it is i have to tell it verbally via my google home hub or home minis i have around the place.
