View Full Version : Mouse controlled Volume ?

January 22nd, 2009, 01:56 PM
Can anyone help me, I'm wondering if its possible to control audio volume with a mouse?

I've built my own volume control knob using an old mouse scroll wheel, there's a few mouse volume knob guides dotted around the web. They all seem to use a nice windows app volumouse to control the vol.

How would I go about this in linux/myth? Is this a job for lirc, my home made knob isn't IR, just a normal tethered usb mouse, but maybe there's a basic lirc plugin for mice? Or maybe not, how about a plugin for mythtv - is this something that sounds doable?

Any help appreciated
