[mythtv-users] volume control from keyboard

When I watch mythfrontend on the Shield TV my Harmony remote uses the 
volume buttons to control the AV receiver.

But when I'm at my Ubuntu desktop the computer keyboard controls 
everything.  I have extra buttons on the keyboard that control the 
volume and mute for the whole computer.  But if I use those while in 
Mythfrontend, it locks up mythfrontend with a paused picture. I have to 
control alt f1 to get out.

I've tried the  f9, f10, f11 buttons in mythfrontend and it show a 
status line with changes to volume settings, but no change in the volume 
occurs.  Any ideas how to fix this??

The sound is thru amplified speakers plugged into line out. and the 
keyboard is a Dell wired keyboard.
