Question Ringtone for Unkown callers (on JellyBean)? RingerVolume doesn't work?

I'm new to Tasker and I have been tampering for half a day trying to get this to work on my JellyBean phone:

Different Ringtone for Unknown Callers - Tasker Wiki

...but like he mentions it plays both the tune I set and the standard ringtone at the same time.
It seems that the task AudioSettings>RingerVolume does not work on JellyBean?

Can you guys help me solve this?

Just a thought but couldn't you set the default ring tone to silent, then change it back?

Yes, that is a good idea, but the problem is that it has no effect on the ringtone in JellyBean.

I have seen this issue before on another forum. I don't remember exactly what they did to keep this from happening But it was something like Setting up different profiles For all of their different phone calls. In other words You could set up a profile for all of your contacts With 1 ringtone and then set up another profile for people not in your contacts with a different ringtone. You could also separate by groups if you have different groups Where each group would have its own ringtone. You can also set individual contacts with different ringtones. There are a lot of things that you can do with these profiles. It's not all that difficult to do this but it is time comsuming. I could work it out and post a tutorial thread about it if you would like.

Yes, I could really use of someone more skilled here.

What I want to accomplish is to have one ring-signal for all my contacts already in the phone;
...and then a different ring-signal for any caller not already listed in my phone (i.e. both hidden and unhidden numbers as long as they are not in my phone already).

Also I'd prefer not to use groups since I'd like to avoid adding every new contact I ever register into a group.

I've even searched a lot for Apps to accomplish this but haven't really found one that seems to work on JellyBean.

So if you could pull this off that would be soooooo great!!

Please give it a try!

Ok. I found a workaround:

I changed (outside of Tasker that is) the phones actual-ring-setting to a "song" called 'Silent'.
Then I set up one profile for unknown callers.
Then I set up another profile for known callers.
Simple workaround.

There is just one more thing I would like to get it perfect though:

I want the "Unknown callers song" to play all the way to the end regardless of how soon the caller hangs up.
BUT I want the known callers ringtone to stop when the caller hangs up. How do I set that up?

(Of course I want both ringtones to stop if I answer the call)

I've got most of it figured out, but the tricky part (for me) is to make a distinction like this happen:

IF Caller=unkown THEN play the whole song
IF Caller = known THEN do as "normal"

Sorry for my crude mock up programming analogy :-)
But you see, what I need help with is how to make Tasker make this distinction between the two above.

I bet this is something a lot of guys here knows how to do. But I'm a newbie and I don't :-)
Any advice?
