    Ok

    So Hannip found this nice file in the windows directory (post bt update) called AudioSettings.pm

    I'm messing with the file right now to try and found out if there's a way to boost volume on various devices (earpiece,bt headset, etc).

    After my first couple of trials I noticed that this section happens to have an affect on the volume of the earpiece, but I still haven't discovered how to INCREASE the volume....only decrease

    <!-- ========== GP_CALL_HANDSET_NORMAL values ========== -->
    <param>
    <index>GainProfile</index>
    <value>8</value>
    </param>

    <!-- === Output Volume 5 Gains === -->
    <param>
    <index>Volume</index>
    <value>5</value>
    </param>

    <!-- === T2 Gain Settings === -->
    <param>
    <index>DigCorOutGain</index>
    <value>0x01</value>
    </param>
    <param>
    <index>DigFinOutGain</index>
    <value>0x3f</value>
    </param>
    <param>
    <index>AnaOutGain</index>
    <value>0x2</value>
    </param>
    <param>
    <index>EarOutGain</index>
    <value>0x1</value>
    </param>


    Lets figure this out!

    <!-- ========== GP_CALL_HANDSET_NORMAL values ========== -->
    <param>
    <index>GainProfile</index>
    <value>8</value>
    </param>

    <!-- === Output Volume 5 Gains === -->
    <param>
    <index>Volume</index>
    <value>5</value>
    </param>

    <!-- === T2 Gain Settings === -->
    <param>
    <index>DigCorOutGain</index>

    </param>
    <param>

    </param>
    <param>
    <index>EarOutGain</index>
    <value>0x1</value>
    </param>

    I've change the value above from 0x2 to 0x7 and noticed a slight decrease in volume and from 0x2 to 0x1 and (if im not just crazy) heard a slight volume increase more testing being done

    Update:
    I spoke on the phone a little while ago after changing that value from 0x2 to 0x0 and the phone's earpiece is definitely louder! When the person was speaking loudly, I had to hold the phone away from my ear because it was so loud.

    Update 2:
    If you simply want to increase the earpiece volume, use the AudioSettings.pm file contained within the zip to replace the one listed in /windows/ and do a soft reset.

    WARNING: THIS COULD AND MAY DESTROY YOUR PHONE

    The earpiece doesnt crackle at all, but it still sounds muffled
    If there was some way to adjust the treble so the speaker didn't sound like there was a towel over my ear, I would be completely happy with the call quality. This should at least help when I'm driving.


    Someone correct me if I'm wrong on the above mod.

    I too have been playing... The bluetooth settings seem to be different from all of the rest. As best I can tell so far changing these setting does little for bluetooth headset call volume. The gainprofile tag seems to be some sort of index of each profiles (maybe cause it skips numbers like 12-17). The headset bit is much clearer.

    kaptainchump, After you change the file... what if anything are you doing? Softreset? restart the volume service? nothing at all?

    Try changing both of these values at the same time

    I'm sorry! I forgot to mention that i used resco exporer to replace the file (after i made a backup) and then I had to do a soft reset in order to notice a difference.

    I can confirm the same increase in volume. My call quality is not so bad -- least it did not seem so. At the 0x2 setting there was not crackling or blown speaker artifacts -- it was just loud when I turned the volume all the way up.

    0x1 seems to be a good setting.

    Also I did not softreset and got the above (seeming improvement) about to soft reset now and see if something changes. I have been testing with the voicemail chick.

    That is what I have been trying. No seeming difference -- I also was restarting both bluetooth (turning it off and back on) and the volume service after changing the file. No difference. I also soft rebooted a time or two -- but I cannot be sure about that bit of the testing.

    I tried setting them to 0 just to see if I could get ANY change (again testing with the voicemail chick) --- nothing. However I need to try it with soft-rebooting.

    Are you planning on moving to ringer settings next, or just leaving it at call volume settings?
    a740 --> a900 --> Katana --> a900 --> a900m --> M1 --> a900m --> PPC6700 --> a900m--> 8400 --> a900m --> Treo 700wx --> Treo 800w

    OK I can be certain now... even with a soft reset, changing those values does not do anything, to the BT headset in call volume. I repeated my original testing from early this afternoon setting these values to 0 or even 50 and soft resetting -- no change.

    Nice... I just discovered that changing this setting:
    <!-- === T2 Gain Settings === -->
    <param>
    <index>DigCorOutGain</index>
    <value>0x01</value>
    </param>
    <param>
    <index>DigFinOutGain</index>
    <value>0x3f</value>
    </param>
    <param>
    <index>AnaOutGain</index>
    <value>0x2</value>
    </param>
    <param>
    <index>EarOutGain</index>
    <value>0x1</value>
    </param>
    to 0x0 seems to prevent you from lowering the volume all the way... It does make it louder however. Putting that back to 0x2 and making EarOutGain 0x0 seems to give the same loudness as having set AnaOutGain to 0x0 and the volume can still be lowered. Having said all that... it is getting really hard to tell if it IS actually louder....

    tbh i probably wont be fooling with the ringer settings. i played my custom ringtone to my girlfriend and asked her if she thinks it's loud. she told me she could hear it out in the living room. the ringtone is plenty loud for me.

    Here is an article that discusses how to make the ring louder. I actually played with this earlier today and it does work to make the ring tone louder (the default registry settings for the 800w are low).

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=258109

    I also am focusing on getting the in call volumes louder -- the bluetooth volume is driving me nutz

    EDIT: oh yah -- I did NOT use the cabs from the xda-devs page... so do so at your own risk. I can say the registry editing DID work and you could test in almost real time (without rebooting)

    anyone try copying over the audiopara file from the mogul or touch...?

    All I need to know is how to make the max volume over A2DP louder. Anyone have any ideas?

    I have have tried many different combinations of things with the audiosettings.pm file. The bluetooth stuff is just not changing. I am kinda at my wits end here... not really sure what to try next. Meh... maybe just need some time away from it for a bit.

    Ok a little bit more info. It seem the volume service affects the bluetooth gateway... because when I disabled it I could not get audio in my BT8040, calls or otherwise.... although the phone did link up (e.g. all the options designating a headset were there like the headset icon and the switch to bluetooth on the call menu)... hmmm had a few lock ups too, not sure if it is related.

    Either way it did start working reliably again (so not certain lockups were related, perhaps my headset battery is low). I can say that when I stopped the volume service, my bluetooth headset did not have the volume reset at the start of the call -- it was at the max setting (still not any louder than before). And of course the volume buttons on the side did not work, but this is known behavior.
