Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CONTROLLING SET TOP BOX VOLUME BASED ON MOBILE DEVICE EVENTS
Abstract:
An apparatus, method and computer-readable medium provide control of set top box volume based on mobile device events. The apparatus may execute a process that includes controlling a volume setting of an audio amplifier to output audio content to the one or more audio or audio/visual devices. A connection event signal from a mobile device is received via a wireless radio frequency receiver. The connection event signal indicates a call state of the mobile device. In response to receiving the connection event signal, a received signal strength indication associated with the connection event signal obtained. A volume setting that corresponds to the obtained received signal strength indication is determined. The volume setting output to the audio amplifier is adjusted according to the determined volume setting.
