The phones framework supports BT volume control but it seem like the BT stack doesn't have complete support for the particular protocol some of these devices use...
When I try to adjust the volume the bar shows on the screen and it move and the speaker icon is substituted with a BT icon... A custom ROM might work but I can't recommend any as I haven't tried them yet... I will work on a solution and post detail here when I know more... My fathers old galaxy s 2 works perfectly with the a33 and I will check with my infuse that runs cyanogenmod.
after some googleing there seems to be bugs in the new bt stack... supposedly from somone testing 4.4.1 they fixed it.. but who knows. i don't even know how to become a 4.4.1 tester...
in the meantime i think any fix will need root.
