    When my screen is locked, I can't adjust the media volume. Is there a way to change that?

    When I am listening to music and my screen is locked I can toggle the volume up and down without any issues. The only thing I can't do that I wish I could is skip to the next track...

    You can skip to the next track on the lock screen if you use the stock music app. I can adjust the volume up and down with the vol buttons when the screen is locked. I must be lucky ;)

    I can confirm that you can adjust media volume even when the phone is locked and the screen is turned off. As mentioned, you can also change tracks without unlocking the phone since this option is visible in the lock screen. Though, I use the stock HTC music app, so I'm not sure if any of this applies to other music apps.

    OK...I guess that feature is disabled by the Lockout App I am running - gives me different lock screen pictures and slide-to-unlock methods.

    I guess I need to revert back to stock if I want the volume controls back.

    Thanks.

    thats weird! On my DINC if the screen is locked I can use the Volume buttons on the side to adjust the volume on my music. I know for a fact I can do this, I was just on the subway and did it.

    This seems to be the issue and why I've already uninstalled Lockbot. I liked Lockbot's customizable lock screen to be able to change the slide, pic, and enable the optical pad to unlock it. However losing the media volume adjustment while locked just isn't going to work and I'm going to go without unless maybe lockbot gives the option as to which buttons it hijacks.
