I remember a couple of months ago someone posted about sliding the ipod volume scrubber up-down-up-down very quickly and then pressing home, and you got a quick glimpse of the Mac Style volume display. I think I've found why this is here: Plug your iPod touch into a stereo-dock that uses the pin connecter on the bottom. Play any song Use the supplied remote (from the docking station) and change the volume up or down. You should see the mac-style volume icon appear with the appropriate volume. Tell me if this worked with your iPods.
