Apple Remote volume control
Please change the default button configuration for the Apple Remote to enable volume control during playback. This has worked perfectly in Home Theater, why must it be broken in Media Player?
Any functionality that is available from the OSD does not need to be mapped to a remote button, like cycling subtitles, audio tracks or various speeds of forwarding. I'll happily do without those things as a direct button. The one and only thing that is not available via the OSD is volume control, and it's a pretty critical functionality.
I do not wish to switch to a different remote with more buttons (everyone in my household gets the super simple Apple Remote), I do not wish to place a keyboard somewhere and try not to touch it accidentally, and I also don't wish to get up every time I might need to adjust the volume.
The button mapping in Home Theater was perfect, please keep it that way.
