No, I'm just saying that whenever possible the volume keys should
be kept the same. On the WPS the volume keys are UP/DOWN so
on the sound setup screen, if it is possible (and it is) the
volume keys should also be UP/DOWN. There are no volume setup
keys when browsing and we have to deal with that.
Have you tried http://www.x64.com/public/ajbrec.ajz? Don't you
find it easier to use?

Do you have a minidisc or a discman? Wouldn't you find it strange
if the volume keys were not the same every time no matter what
was written on the LCD?
