Program code is the same. It's not reliable so will be redesigned when this feature will be implemented to common release.

I have the same requirement for a countdown timer, counting down from 5 seconds to start, running in a one minute loop.

I came up with this solution, before I discovered this forum!

I have created a Microsoft Powerpoint slide show with 60 black slides, and set it up to automatically transition the slides every one second. The last 5 slides have large digits in white, 5, 4, 3, etc and a sound file associated with each slide, with 5 - 1 being one tone, and the last slide having a different tone.

If you don't have Microsoft Powerpoint, you might be able to do the same thing with StarOffice, which is an open source office productivity suite, but I have not tested this.
