Then don't bother. Like I said, mute the system. Pressing the + and - buttons together takes one second. So you're listening to music. Wanna change songs? Mute the system, hit whatever button, then unmute and listen away. Now that I've solved your issue for you, mark this thread as "Solved". LOL kthxbai.
