XMBC Version: 2.19.2
Windows Version:
Mouse Information (brand/model):
Relevant Computer Information (CPU, RAM etc):
Did the problem occur after an upgrade of XMBC? (If so, from what version?):
Did the problem occur after a Windows update/upgrade? (If so, from what version?):
How long have you used XMBC?:
What language and keyboard layout do you use in Windows?:

Clear description of the problem - try and include as much information as possible, including what button and mappings you are having problems with (if applicable).:
I want to map the volume up/down to my mouse button. However, all of them are already occupied. Is it possible to map button3 AND button4 press to volume up and some other combination to volume down?
Thanks a lot.

Skipping above information because not applicable in this scenario.

You have the option of button chording...
That will allow you to chord multiple buttons together which I think will accomplish your task.

For example, I chord my right mouse button with the scroll wheel to turn volume up/down. The right button continues to work as normal if its just clicked.

Thank you phil. Button chording did the job.
Damn, XMBC is a godsend for me.
