New volume control behavior in iTunes 10
Authored by: brunow on Sep 24, '10 09:38:21AM

Somehow, these new volume controls can give very strange results.
Suddenly I did not get any more output on my Airport Express.
It took me quite a while to point the problem to this.

Try this:
- first select your AE and then go to Multiple Speakers.
- Slide the volume of the AE all the way down
- Switch back to computer and play something (bringing the volume up if necessary)
- Stop playback and switch back to AE
- You'll notice the volume jumping back to zero.
- Play something and bring the volume back up.
- Nothing happens !!
- The volume of the AE in multiple speakers does not go up with the master volume in iTunes
- You have to go to multiple speakers and bring it up to hear something

Although I had not used multiple speakers before, somehow the volume of AE was at zero (since iTunes 10)
I thought there was something wrong with the AE and tried everything to get it working again.

This hint pointed me to multiple speakers and solved the problem.
A lot of thanks for that.

But I have a feeling this must be a bug, since this does not seem like proper behavior to me.
