    I was looking at the iPod Touch 4 PDF Manual and cannot find what the 'Change With Buttons' listed under 'Settings/Sounds' means ? I had it on and off but it does not seems to make any changes.

    Anyone has a clue of what this is ?

    Did you not try it yourself? As far as I can tell, because I just tried it, it adjusts the ringer volume when on. The ringer bar moves and it says ringer in the black on screen volume pop-up box thing. Without it on it adjusts the platform volume.

    With this feature on, it lets you adjust both the program volume, and alerts volume with the volume rocker. This can get to be annoying though, because the rocker will do different things depending on what screen you happen to be on. I've accidentally had blasting volume when I wanted silence because I lowered the volume, but it was actually the ringer volume, while the program volume was still cranked.

    With this feature off, you adjust your alerts volume in the settings menu, and it stays fixed with the volume rocker having no affect on it. Then the volume rocker is always adjusting your program volume no matter what.

    A little wonky in my opinion, though I'm not sure how else they could implement it. Other than having one master volume for everything, which I'm surprised they don't have. Maybe in an update.
