Same issue here, but have not found any temporary fix or workaround. Volume buttons on side used to control ringer volume unless media was playing, now they only control media volume no matter what. Restarting does not fix. Restarting in Safe Mode does not fix. Pressing volume keys in any certain order does not fix. I have to go into settings and manually change ringer volume every single time I want to change it. Moto X4

I updated my profile, but I'll also state here I have a Moto X4. I did record a video but please excuse the bumpiness. I was using one phone to take video of another ;-) http://home.hampshire.edu/~rwDV/MediaOnly.mp4
I also need to mention I say something in the video that is inaccurate. This behavior with the two sliders and the tone does not happen on a regular start. I see it only in safe mode. I inaccurately said in the video it was not limited to safe mode.
I should also mention when I removed my passcode and boot into safe mode, there is no tone on start and no dual sliders then, but it goes straight to a single media only slider.

Thank you for the video. Are you using third-party apps for your volume? I'll have my team checked this as well.

Thanks for posting back. Is your X4 running Pie OS? If so, media volume is set by default when you press the volume rockers. That's the standard for Pie OS.

Is Pie OS also called Android version 9? I have Andriod version: 9, software channel: retus, software variant: google_fi
Yes, Android 9 version is called Pie.

Right but so what?
Why doesn't Lenovo get cracking on an update to rectify this then?
It's an issue for people so get it sorted, at least give people the choice to have ringer control with the buttons if they want.
Every Moto handset gets progressively worse for features.

Thanks for your feedback. I'll pass this along but we can't guarantee any changes since it's a stock Android feature.

How the physical buttons on YOUR physical handsets is a feature you have no control over?
That is an utterly ridiculous response, why are people/companies unable or unwilling to take ownership of issues they have a direct hand in causing or being able change?
Motorola can easily issue an update so that when pressing the up/down volume key instead of just the media volume appearing, all volume levels show and a person can choose which one to raise/lower.
How on earth can any manufacturer say that an OS can dictate the physical operation of buttons on a physical device?
Do you honestly mean to say that Samsung, Huawei, Nokia, OnePlus, Honor and multiple other brands are told how and why they can program the physical buttons on their handsets?
I think not, and I also think your answer is a complete cop out.
