    I followed the instructions on APOD Wallpaper - Tasker Wiki so that daily my wallpaper on my HTC Incredible should be updated to reflect the NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day.

    The wallpaper is updated, but at the end of time context, say, 7:05, to use the above example, the wallpaper reverts to the previous image.

    When I use "test" on the task in tasker, the wallpaper updates and remains updated.

    Does anyone have any suggestions why the wallpaper reverts to the previous wallpaper image when I rely on the time context to perform this automated task?

    ETA: Here is the export file for the profile. I would export the task, but the task seems to be working fine:

    Try changing the Time context to be all day, but have it repeat every 24 hours.

    Or, another way to do it, would be to make this task the Exit task instead of the Enter task and change it to a single time (12:00 am) only.
