I see from the xine FAQ that sometimes the GUI won’t control volume because of the sound driver.

I am using ALSA, with the ca-0106 driver (SoundBlaster Live! 24-bit), and sure enough, the xine GUI doesn’t control the volume.

I am going to be using an infrared remote with LIRC, but I want to be able to control volume with the remote. Any suggestions on how to do this, if xine won’t listen to my volume commands?
