Fantastic! Thank you so much for the separate volume control for time mutes. I feel very privileged. I'm off to try out 1.5.13 now.

I just got back from trying out the volume control for time mutes. Works like a charm. I set things so I no longer hear BSM mutes or OTB mutes, but still hear real alerts at 10% volume after they are time muted at 5 seconds. I don't even have to touch my phone now. Thanks again.

The bogey lock volume adjustment isn't working for me. I set it way down to 30% and it's still really loud.
It was working for me when last I tested, but I'll test it again tonight.

It's working for output to media stream. However, when using Force Speaker or Auto Stream Selection with no music streaming while BT-connected to something for audio, alert audio goes to your device's voice call stream with speaker phone turned on, and that stream has a device-dependent minimum volume. Also, the additional volume control (relative to stream volume) when playing a sound effect to that stream appears to have no effect. I'll see if I can find a workaround tonight.

I don't stream music in my car but my phone is connected for phone calls and it's also connected to my watch.

I have force speaker turned on. Should I turn it off? I've never tried turning it off so I have no idea if Jbv1 will try to alert through the car.

If you never stream music to your car, you can disable A2DP for that BT device. Go into phone settings for the BT device that is your car radio and disable media/music audio (A2DP). Be sure to leave call audio enabled. When there's no A2DP connection, JBV1 will use your phone's media stream, regardless of force speaker setting, and you'll have full control of volume down to 0%.

Below is a screenshot of the BT device for my headphones that I used to test here at work. The setting to disable is called Media audio on my phone. It may be slightly different on your phone.

That bluetooth option isn't available when connected to the car.

I turned off both Force Speaker and Auto Stream Selection but that didn't help it's still just as loud. It seems to always be linked to my call volume instead of media volume. I made a call and had to turn the volume up which made the bogey lock tone super loud. Any way to force it to media volume instead?

Phone is a Samsung Note 9 with android 9

Or if you prefer, export your current settings and PM them to me.

It's a 2011 which does not even have the option to stream music just calls. Here are the audio handling settings. If you need all of my settings just let me know and I can pm them to you

I also have my galaxy watch connected if that matters.

Hmm, maybe the watch has Media audio enabled. Have you checked its BT device settings?

Nevermind, I see that you already checked.

There must be an A2DP connection to something, because the app won't use the voice call stream otherwise. Maybe I'll add an A2DP indicator of sorts that identifies the connected device.

Just went out to my car and checked. No other Bluetooth devices connected or even available. It says my car and my watch are connected for "call audio"

So after some playing it appears I can stream music from the phone to the watch. This could be what's causing the problem.

Any way to force it to use media volume permanently instead?

It should send to media stream when force speaker and auto stream selection are disabled. Are your alert and auto mute volume controls having no effect, too?
