I installed slimserver 7. What a dissapointment: The web interfaces (except touch und nokia) still have only 10 steps for volume control. Is there any reason not to implement those additional + / - buttons for 1% steps at least in the handheld skin?

There should be 11.

Because most of us don't like clicking 100x on a button to get the volume down.

lol ; me too.
Ben Klaas added (!) just a "+" and "-" for the small increments on the touch skin.

I use it on my notebook, it works perfect to adjust "a little". But unfortunately the touch skin was not adapted for PDAs, only to Nokia 770 and PSP. Why?

Because PDA screens usually are too small. Handheld has been optimized to be used on devices with 240x320px only. Two of Touch's buttons would fill that screen.

...and what about the additional + and - on the handheld skin?

On my 240*320 PDA there are four lines (about 25%) of the whole screen used just to control Mute, Repeat, Shuffle and Power. So lots of space there.

Or change the Volume line to: "Volume: Softer - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 + Louder" or "Volume: -- - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 + ++" or whatever you like.

In Version 6.5 the volume steps were increased from 40 to 100 and the webinterface still has 11 !

For me it's really annoying to have the music either too loud or quiet and the only thing I really want to control (if any) while listening to music is the volume. So I always (have to) use the Notebook with touch skin instead of the PDA.

Feel free to file an enhancement request on http://bugs.slimdevices.com -
assign it to me.

Lack of more complaints I'm assuming that 11 levels is ok for most users.
What step are you missing? It must obviously be somewhere between two of
the available steps.
