These commands from VDR don't change the volume. Have a look for
In vdr-xine's setup menu, you can control how vdr-xine handles volume
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
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:
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).
Lets you choose among several options how xine shall process VDR's muting
Muting respectively unmuting requests will be ignored.
Muting respectively unmuting requests will be executed.
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.
