    Help please ...
    I seemed to remember that I could control the volume of the digital out with the volume up/down keys. But doesn't work now. The keys only affect the internal speaker.

    Anyone with ideas?

    Hi,

    The volume control only affects the analog audio output, not the digital. You would have to adjust the volume from the speaker's control. I've got my G5's digital output going to a SoundBlaster Extigy, and the Extigy drives my Klipsch ProMedia 5.1 speakers. I kep the Extigy turned all the way up, and adjust the volume via the control on the speakers.

    Regards,
    Marc

    Thanks.

    I guess I must be losing my mind :D
