I see a similar problemm, if not the same one. One of the very few
remaining unhappinesses that I have with slimserver and the SBox.

When I reboot my WinXP PC with the SBox powered on, the volume on the SBox
always seems to come back on at zero. I've seen this across every 5.4.x
build that I've tried. Fairly annoying -- I too thought the SBox was broken
or needed to be reset, until I figured this out. This is why programming
SBox volume controls, in addition to my receiver's volume controls, was such
a priority for me on my universal remote.

Right now I'm running the 5.4.1 1/31 nightly.

Is this by design? If so, can it please change? :o) I would expect the
server-side to remember the volume that the player was last set at...
