I know exactly what you're describing.  It looks like though if you do that,
then why even store the volume in the database like it does now?  I was
describing what I think would make sense and would accomplish what you want
also.  Myth would automatically reset the volume to whatever you had the
volume set to last time you used Myth.  My proposal would fix your problem
and also make Myth act more like a regular TV or stereo since it would
record the new volume in the database anytime you changed it.
