I am using autocast and it is working well. The only problem I am having is that I have two chromecasts. It appears as though it always uses the last chromecast that I connected to. Is there a way to choose which chromecast to use for a certain task? I would like to be able to have my bedroom chromecast show me information in the morning and wake me up with a song, and then about 10 minutes later have my living room TV display weather and traffic information while I eat breakfast.

Here is a video showing some examples for Remote CMD on Windows 8.1.  The video only shows the computer screen, but here is the tasker task that I used in the video:

1) plugin->Remote CMD, fill in ip and port, then command as: notify hello, how are you?
2) wait 5s
3) plugin->Remote CMD, command: open start chrome google.com
4) wait 5s
5) plugin->Remote CMD, command: sms %SMSRN | %SMSRF | %SMSRB

+Luis Paredes I uploaded a mac version of my program to use with my plugin as well as some instructions to get it running. I would really appreciate you bug testing this for me and offering suggestions for features.

I am trying to find a better way to distribute the program on Mac. I don't use Mac very often and I'm not as familiar with it.

Hello, I made an app/tasker plugin/pc program called Remote CMD that will allow you to control you computer from your phone.  By control, I mean run commands, open programs, send popup notifications, send files, etc.  It is in a beta stage and will likely have more features added.  A simple use case example would be to have your computer open a program whenever your phone receives a notification, or create a shortcut on your phone to open programs on your computer (you could open firefox, pidgin, openoffice, etc. all with one touch on your phone).  Please give it a try and give feedback.  It currently supports Linux 64bit and Windows (should work on all versions).  Mac OSX is coming soon (as early as later today possibly) and Linux 32bit should be supported soon as well.

Hello, I am using AutoRemote with linux (Linux Mint), and I've wanted an easier way to deal with sending/receiving messages.  I decided to write a python server that I run on my computer and a small python client that I can call from within tasker to communicate with my computer (it would be nice to make a tasker plugin instead of a python client, but I don't know where to begin for that really).  Right now I have the capability of doing a few things on my computer from my phone.  From my phone I can: 

1) run any command on my computer and receive the output on my phone
2) open any program on my computer from my phone
3) when I receive a text message, it shows up in a window on my computer and I am able to reply from my computer

From my computer I can:
1) send autoremote messages
2) read and reply to text messages

I am using these things with tasker/autoapps to allow me to automatically open my web browser (on my computer) to gmail.com whenever I receive a notification from gmail, or facebook.com when I receive a notification from facebook, open my music program on my computer whenever I get home, etc.  I can receive and send text messages from my computer.  I can send any autoremote message to my phone easily from my computer.

I say all this to ask if anyone else on here uses linux and has some kind of similar program to run programs on their computer triggered by events on their phone.  I don't know much about Event Ghost, but everyone on here is talking about it, and I imagine what I'm making/looking for might be similar to that.

+João Dias Yes, I think that would be good.  My program already has capability to send AutoRemote messages (using the url direct method), so it would also be good to be able to receive AutoRemote messages, and show up as a device on AutoRemote.

Hello, I have created a very simple (ugly) AutoCast screen that I use to display the weather. You can download and import it into AutoCast from here:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/trsonsmg4ufdofa/weather.autocastscreen

You just need to fill in the fields with the correct information. So, if you already have a task that gathers weather information, you can just add autocast to the end of that and use the variables for the fields.

There are tons of weather tasks for tasker, so download one or create your own.

When sending a text message using tasker in android 4.4.2, it does not store the text message in the messaging app (Hangouts).  Is anyone else having this issue, or does anyone know the solution?

Hello, is it possible to use autoshare to do a Google Music search and play a whole album, and not just one song?  Right now I use autovoice to say "Play songname" and it plays a song, I would like to be able to say "play album albumname" and have it play the whole album.

I don't store all of my music on my phone, so I was hoping this could be done with the google play music app.
