sync'd music playlists stop playing after one song when casting to chromecast audio from iPhone SE

mysiemysie Posts: 2Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I have a set up at home where my Plex media server is not always powered on.
I have synced a playlist to my iPhone SE.
When I play the sync'd playlist through my Chromecast audio connected to my amp/speakers, the music stops after a single song. This only happens when the iPhone has gone to 'sleep' (ie phone locked).
If I am using the phone (ie. phone awake) the next song plays no problem.
Usually what I want to do is get the music playing and leave the phone on a table or in my pocket. At the moment I'm having to wake the phone up at the end of each song.

I have no issue when playing the playlist through headphones - only when casting to chromecast audio

I'm wondering if I'm missing a setting somewhere or if I may have stumbled across a bug?

Any help would be very much appreciated :)
