WTH Where's the big button for volume controls?

I have a 10" tablet on my wall that has a home assistant app running on it. For ease of use, I’ve created a custom dashboard that mostly just puts scripts dedicated to one button - I call the dashboard “Big Buttons”. Want to play Jazz music everywhere? Hit the big Jazz button and the script will launch and group sonos to the correct pandora station - it’s great. But as soon as I want to adjust the volume - I have to use the mini media player from hacs, but it’s “mini”. I would love for the “Gauge” element to be clickable to set a volume instead of feedback only - it’s big! Similar to the “Light” element that gives a slider if the light is dimmable

you can do that with any button & service call.

I would like to see a dial like the light brightness control that can map to the actual volume values that I see on the front of my receiver (-80 to +20 dB), not necessarily a percentage.

For the time being, you can make a compensation sensor that maps the volumes to your decibles, then use that sensor as the state for a number template.

  unique_id: yamaha_receiver_volume
  source: media_player.yamaha_rx_v6a
  attribute: volume_level
  unit_of_measurement: dB
  precision: 1
    - [0.0, -80.0]
    - [1.0, 20.0]

  unique_id: yamaha_reciever_reverse
  source: sensor.yamaha_receiver_volume
  precision: 2
    - [-80.0, 0.0]
    - [20.0, 1.0]
- number:
  - name: Yamaha Volume
    state: "{{ states('sensor.yamaha_receiver_volume') }}"
    - service: media_player.set_volume
        entity_id: media_player.yamaha_rx_v6a
        volume_level: "{{ states('sensor.yamaha_reciever_reverse') }}"

That will make a slider for the UI.
