New volume control behavior in iTunes 10
Authored by: chancer on Sep 07, '10 05:52:20PM

Thank you for this information. At first, I thought something was wrong with my iTunes!

This new behavior is annoying to me. I don't want iTunes volume to control my external speakers' volume, only the music volume on my Mac. It's driving me nuts!

Regardless, I appreciate the explanation of exactly how it works.

I believe your description of how it worked previously is not correct, though, at least, not for all users. Before iTunes 10, the volume on my external speakers was not affected in the least by the iTunes volume control. I set their volume with the remote for the stereo receiver that those speakers are plugged into.

New volume control behavior in iTunes 10

Are you sure you weren't changing the system volume on your computer before, rather than the volume in iTunes? The system volume obviously never affected AirTunes, but the iTunes volume has always affected the AirTunes volume on my system just as tchenj describes, and I see no reason that would be different on other systems.

Anyway, the system volume still only affects the volume on your Mac so if you change the volume level of your Mac, rather than the volume in iTunes, than you should get the behavior you want. ie. This change did not really affect me because I always keep the volume level in iTunes set at 100% and I change the volume on my Mac using the media keys on my keyboard or the Apple Remote.
