    I know you can turn itunes up/down using Ctrl+Arrow up/down but it doesnt work when its not the active window.

    i cant turn my volume down using Dinova keyboard because i'm using Toslink which doesn't allow you to turn it down.

    Setup - Imac -> 3.5mm to Toslink - > DAC -> Amp -> Speakers

    what i want to do is Turn down itunes whilst playing TF2!

    any ideas?

    i tried adding a keyboard short to - & + keys it didnt work.

    Try using a program like Synergy. There are others like it, but it's a menubar iTunes controller that also allows you to set hotkeys for volume up/down, among other things.
