  1. 3RVX does not get the job done. In windows you have to click the Volume Button 50 times for it to go from 0-100. In Mac You only have 10, which is way better, who the hell wants to click the freakin button 50 times?

  2. Sorry to say, this works for the most part, but eventually takes away ability to use scroll wheel on mouse in browser/application windows vertical scroll bars.

    Has anyone else had this issue?
