I have an edirol UA-25 external USB soundcard which uses asio to communicate with the pc and so the windows audio mixer isnt used.

However the volume controls on my keyboard control the system volume in the windows mixer and so they are ineffective.

This becomes a real pain when im using the pc as a media center (MCE doesnt even have its own volume settings like itunes does) as its connected to an lcd tv and therefore i have to get up to go an manually change the volume on the speakers.

is there anyway round this??
