auxiliary going in and out

Post by meach on Sun Nov 10, 2013 9:17 pm

i just downloaded soundabout today after finding a post on another forums saying this would fix issues with your phone not registering that you plugged an auxiliary cable into it to play music through your head unit.

after messing with it for a few minutes it started to work. after one song the "headphones connected" icon disappeared and i had to go through the process all over again.

the other forum said the app worked like a charm, but for some reason mine is not.

any suggestions?

Just noticed your post. It seems that your phone might have an issue where the headset jack keeps sending that a headset is plugged in and out at random times. I've read where some people got lint out of the headset jack using a toothpick and an air canister.

If that doesn't work, or you don't want to try it, then you may have to go into manual mode.

In SoundAbout:

1) Go into "Wired Headset behavior" screen.
2) Un-check "Wired Headset detection".
This should help maintain the audio output that you want by ignoring the signals that the phone keeps sending that the headset is being plugged in and out.
You may still see the headset icon on the status bar, because one app can't have permission to remove another app's status bar notifications.
3) Restart the phone.
4) If you want to use the headset, you can either open SoundAbout and change the "Media audio" to "Wired headset (with mic)" or "Wired Headphones".
Another option is to leave "Media audio" on "Let app decide" and put the widget named "Headset Toggle" on your home screen.
You can press the widget to allow/disallow the wired headset.

I sent an email to you with the Beta version.

1) Are you toggling a wired headset and a Bluetooth media device for music?
or
2) Are you toggling a wired headset and a Bluetooth phone device for a phone call?
3) If YES for #2, are you toggling using the SoundAbout widget or are you trying to toggle from within the Android phone app?

To toggle between Bluetooth and wired headset using SoundAbout:
1) Place the widget named "Headset toggle" on the Home Screen.
2) Press the Headset toggle widget to toggle between the Wired headset and Bluetooth device.

To toggle between Bluetooth and wired headset using Android Phone app:
1) You may have to go into "Bluetooth behavior" and un-check the "Disable wired audio" setting. We'll see if the attached SoundAbout let's you do that.
2) Make a phone call and see if you can toggle between wired headset and Bluetooth.
