Unified Remote plugin in Tasker stopped working
Kent Lanier 00
I have used Unified Remote for a long time and I love it. I recently started trying to integrate it with Tasker. I have a mac and a pc I am trying to make go to sleep with unified remote as a task in Tasker.
My Nexus 5x worked at first with Tasker with the pc but I couldn't get it to work with the mac. I thought this was strange because the Unified Remote app still works just not in Tasker. So, I tried my work phone, a Samsung J36V, It worked with both the mac and pc for about a day. It stopped working suddenly for seemingly no reason.
Well, I did set up a remote server on my PC and Mac for Unified Remote using a static ip and port forwarding so that Tasker would still function with Unified when not connected to the local network. Also, just to use the Unified app remotely.
This worked fine in the Unified app but when I tried to Use Tasker on my work phone, It took a long time for the computers to respond and shortly after, Unified in Tasker stopped working completely. I did manage to sleep each monitor a couple times with my phone connected to the cellular network but It took forever and only a random one of the two monitors would sleep. I switched it back to the local network which I thought might fix the problem, Unified Remote still wouldn't work in Tasker.
Now, Unified Remote doesn't work in Tasker at all. Both phones, both computers. I tried reinstalling the Tasker and Unified apps and putting all the settings back to the way it was when it was working. Nothing.
The Unified Remote app works fine.

Same for me.
Do you have a solution?

Also running into the same problem - using a different app for scripting controls (E-Robot); all that happens is when trying to execute a command that makes use of the Tasker plugin, a blank toast message appears (with the Unified Remote icon) and the UR app becomes unresponsive - I have to kill it to make it usable again.

Since yesterday it is not possible to open remotes from Tasker plugin.

Same problem, sending intent to turn off monitors.
Same for me. I made a Tasker app that includes buttons to open some UR remotes, or send IR signals via UR, now those buttons do nothing in the compiled Tasker app, nor while running in Tasker. Newly created instances of the commands in Tasker also do nothing. Very frustrating.
EDIT: Just noticed that the release notes say the latest version "fixed Tasker compatibility," which is absolutely not accurate, for my S6.
Mine is working, ZTE Blade

I fixed it by recreating the task in Tasker.
That seems like a potential workaround, mine has been working from a newly created task..
