Posting to /select and receiving error 1019

Hi all,

I'm just playing around with the SoundTouch API, trying to get a Tasker (Android app) task to make a POST request to turn on the Bluetooth source on my SoundTouch 10.

Via curl I see no issues:

~ curl -d "<ContentItem source="BLUETOOTH"></ContentItem>" -X POST -v
Note: Unnecessary use of -X or --request, POST is already inferred.

But when I try the same POST in Tasker I see the following response:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?><errors deviceID="68C90BD04C6C"><error value="1019" name="CLIENT_XML_ERROR" severity="Unknown">Error parsing request</error></errors>

I cannot see any typos or other issue. I also have little idea what this response means! Any insights?

    I suppose the response means I have some syntax error in the XML payload, but the exact command works sent from my laptop. Are there any logs we can access for the SoundTouch?

    Hey joshpfosi,

    Sorry for the delay in my reply! I did some investigation into this, and was eventually able to get it working, though I did initially have some trouble. Do you have a Content Type set in the Tasker action? I had to set that to text/xml to get it working.

    No worries. I do have that option. That fixed it. Thanks.
