thank you for the tip with hotkeys

now I have something working with amixer and hotkeys

I have a shell script called envy24volume.sh to control the second soundcard
with amixer:

if [ $1 == 'm' ]; then
amixer -c 2 set Multi,0 mute
amixer -c 2 set Multi,1 mute
amixer -c 2 set Multi,0 unmute
amixer -c 2 set Multi,1 unmute
amixer -c 2 set DAC,0 1$1
amixer -c 2 set DAC,1 1$1

and added in /usr/share/hotkeys/itouch.def the lines

<userdef keycode="160" command="binpath/envy24volume.sh m">Mute</userdef>
<userdef keycode="174" command="binpath/envy24volume.sh -">VolDown</userdef>
<userdef keycode="176" command="binpath/envy24volume.sh +">VolUp</userdef>

this works fine for Mute/Volume Up/Volume down now!

thank you
