I took the other approach and put an IR blaster onto the frontend and
change the volume via irexec on the amp directly. I still map the commands
to myth so I get the volume slider going up & down (but it does nothing
with digital) - I just have to resync the amp volume and the slider once a
week so it gives a reasonable clue as to where the volume is really set.
