These commands from VDR don't change the volume. Have a look for

	SetVolumeDevice: 175

In vdr-xine's setup menu, you can control how vdr-xine handles volume
control.

An excerpt from vdr-xine's MANUAL:

Control xine's volume: Yes (by hardware)

Allows you to control whether xine shall honor VDR's set volume
requests. You
might need this if you have a special setup (e. g. external audio decoder or
amplifier) where changing the volume in xine might mute external audio:

* No
  xine isn't instructed to change the volume.
* Yes (by hardware)
  xine will change the volume by changing the hardware mixer (won't work
  when using a digital audio output).
* Yes (by software)
  xine will change the volume by using it's internal software mixer (should
  work even when using a digital audio output).


Muting: Simulate

Lets you choose among several options how xine shall process VDR's muting
requests:

* Ignore
  Muting respectively unmuting requests will be ignored.
* Execute
  Muting respectively unmuting requests will be executed.
* Simulate
  Muting is simulated by setting volume to 0. Unmuting is simulated by
  restoring the previous volume.

  NOTE: This happens even if "Control xine's volume" is set to "No"!

Do I get it right: it increased from 10% to 35% - 45%?

Cannot reproduce this here.

I'm sorry, I do not have any test results here so far.
