Newest VLC, and newest anyremote and volume changing does not work. Is this a bug or I've ommited something?
Please send me (anyremote (at) mail.ru) details:
- distro name and version
- version of anyremote
- version of VLC
- outpu of "which amixer" command
- log file of anyremote (You need to run it as: anyremote -log -f /pth/to/cfg/file, then find logs in $HOME/.anyRemote/anyremote.log)
It does work on my Fedora13
IMHO Your issue can be caused by PulseAudio (it does not controlled properly by amixer)
Different distros handles ALSA-PulseAudio integration quite differently.
Just an idea: You can play with $(MixerChannel) variable (see http://anyremote.sourceforge.net/vars.html for details)
