Okay, I see the Internal Controls in the Audio settings of Frontend.  
PCM didn't work, but Master did.  So now F9, F10, F11 work for 
controlling volume.

However, If I screw up and press the Dell Keyboard buttons for volume 
control it's locks up Mythfrontend. Any idea on how to fix this from 
happening? Could I assign whatever these keys do to nothing or f9, f10, f11?
