Please don't change this...

I'm also using S/PDIF output so my volume control does nothing *inside
MythTV* but since I intercept the lirc codes with irexec and use an IR
blaster to change the volume on my receiver I get the best of both worlds
- the volume changes and I see the value on the screen.

Admittedly is not perfect because MythTV and the receiver do get out of
sync but it works for me!!
