JC-TREO has mastered the Pre call volume and media settings along with Mamouton! I asked JC-TREO if we pixi owners can get a boost in volume.

JC-TREO Wrote
"Would love to help, but need more info on the pixi hardware.

Anyone comfortable with accessing the linux command line on the pixi is welcome to pm me and we could check a few things."

IS there any pixi owner out there that can help!

Great job and this community is awesome!

I am not asking one person... I am asking for what JC-TREO is asking:

"Anyone comfortable with accessing the linux command line on the pixi is welcome to pm me and we could check a few things."

right, and Jason would be extremely capable. you should just ask if he is willing to check a few things since he is such an amazing developer.

stu5797- Which pixi volume would you like increased? I still have not really found much, but I am thinking this patch might work on the pixi for increasing a2dp volume. (listening to media through a stereo a2dp bluetooth headset). If anyone with a pixi would like to give it a try, please let me know your results and if it does boost the a2dp volume.

Note- I was not able to install it using email methods and had to use webOS Quick Install.

Take care. -Jud

EDIT- THE VERSION FOR THE PRE WILL NOT WORK ON THE PIXI.

Will try this new patch asap!

When I am on a phone call on speakerphone I would love that speakerphone to be louder. Also, I would love it to be louder when I am talking with someone on the phone not in speakerphone mode.
Really appreciate all your effort and will report back!

Hi JC- I tried to install the patch but this link

[Patch]Increased Media and In Call Volume

takes you to the 5th page of the thread?
Can you attach exactly which patch you want us to try?
Thanks

Wont install a2dpvolume.patch via wosqi.
An error occured while attempting to run /tmp/scriptfile.sh
1 out of 1 hunks failed- see webos-patches.log for more details.
(wish I knew how to do that!)

my bad... Looks like the pixi files are different. Try this one. This is for a2dp volume ONLY. Will also cause clipping at high output levels.

There is about a 1 in 10 chance that this will work. I really need someone to run "pactl list" on the pixi and send me the output

let me know....

It installed via wosqi. Restarting now!

I have no way to really test this because I do not use bluetooth or listem thru a stereo. Is there another way to test?
Thanks again!!!!!!!

Thanks. If it does what I intended it to do, it should only increase a2dp.

If the pixi setup differs from the pre, it is possible it affected one of the other volume levels. Could be any volume including the volume of the dial pad when dialing a number. I am not sure how to tell without getting the output from "pactl list"

Many thanks. Keep me posted....

root@palm-webos-device: pactl list
*** Module #0 ***
Name: module-alsa-sink
Argument: device=hw:0 sink_name=pcm_output fragment_size=4800 fragments=2 mmap=1 tsched=0
Usage counter: n/a
Auto unload: no

This is what I get when i imput pactl list in wosqi.
When I put in pactl list in terminal on my pixi I get a whole bunch of text. Wish I could get that to you somehow?

Thanks.... yes, it is the 'whole bunch' that I need.

You could also use novaterm from windows which will give you the command line, but off the top of my head I cannot recall if it lets you copy and paste from it.

I installed novaterm. I input pactl list and got what you want but could not copy and get the info to this forum. Darn it

well...since you're on a roll try

pactl list > /tmp/list.txt

Then, I think in webosQI, you can copy /tmp/list.txt to your computer...post it here or paste it into a pm to me....
