Pretty much you can display it alot of ways:

You can make it vertical like Night
You can put a ball at the end like I do in the pausebar of Night
You can make it look like increasing Volume bars like in Alaska
You could make it go left to right with a rotate animation
etc...

I'd code each 'dot' as a separate image with visible conditions for each like so -

<visible>IntegerGreaterThan(player.volume,-60)</visible>

<visible>IntegerGreaterThan(player.volume,-50)</visible>

<visible>IntegerGreaterThan(player.volume,-40)</visible>

<visible>IntegerGreaterThan(player.volume,-30)</visible>

<visible>IntegerGreaterThan(player.volume,-20)</visible>

<visible>IntegerGreaterThan(player.volume,-10)</visible>

<visible>IntegerGreaterThan(player.volume,-0)</visible>

Anyway XBMC can just read what the master volume on windows is.

I ask because I have setup my Harmony Remote up to change the master volume, rather than XBMC internal volume, as I can then use the remote to change volume during Bluray playback using PowerDVD10.
