View Full Version : 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.

so is this a bug report, a feature request...or just fuming?
