    Hi all - I have a Macbook connected to remote speakers via Airport Express. I can change the volume coming out of the speakers using the iTunes volume bar. Could anyone please tell me how I can control the volume coming out of the speakers using the Mac's master volume?

    Also, is there a way of playing sounds from the internet through Airport rather than through the computer's own speakers.

    Thanks very much for any help on this.

    Olly

    Sizzling Keys

    Another way to increase the volume when using the Airport Express is to download an app called Sizzling Keys, which lets you control iTunes when iTunes is not the open window.

    When using Sizzling Keys to adjust the volume, it adjusts the volume in iTunes, not the volume of the computer speakers.

    +/-

    Using Cmd+/- works only when you have iTunes as the open window. For example, if you press Cmd++ when Safari is the front window, then it makes the text bigger, and not the volume louder.

    Using sizzling keys, i have it set so when i press function+f5, the volume increases, and when i press function+f4, the volume decreases.
