    Squeezebox alarm

    On a related note...

    <RANT>
    Why are there three different volume control scales? On the player
    interface it goes from 0-40, on the Web Interface, it goes 0-11 (V. Cool
    BTW), and when you set the alarm volume from the web interface, it goes
    from 0-100!
    </RANT>

    Just something I noticed the other day when I nearly didn't wake up to
    my new SB after setting the alarm volume in the web interface to 30
    (thinking it was 30/40) when it should have been set to 75.
