Volume Control + VB Script ?
I currently have a computer connect to the PA System at work and it has scheduled tasks set to basically open various mp3's at the scheduled intervals. They play twice daily with a bat file to start them and we just trim the tracks to 5 minutes as they cannot go over. We have been thinking of changing it, so there are more random tracks played.
We have decided to have media player playing 24/7 and we are trying to find a way of creating a vbscript that can be called like the current scheduled tasks but they tasks simply fade the pc's audio in on one vb and fade it out, however all I can find is tasks that mute the PC.
Anyone have any ideas?

There isn't a default way to script volume changes, without cheating via vbs. You'll either need a 3rd party app which accepts command line keys, or "if you'll be only using the pc for PA control", just cheat and use sendkeys (F8 decreases media player volume, f9 increases it). Send one of those keys a few times, split apart and you have a fade of sorts, but not exactly "slick"
