The Apple TV has no volume control, the same as other such devices (DVD/Blu-Ray, Consoles etc). When using airplay from an IOS device you are controlling the volume on that device. It should also work when playing from MBP too. Are you using the remote app?

Andrew- this is how I would expect things to work. However, when I use airplay from my iPhone to say, play a youtube video, the volume on the phone is suddenly rendered useless and I'm forced to adjust the amplifier. When I just play audio from the phone, the volume works.
It's the same on my macbook pro. If I mirror the screen, my computer's volume affects the speakers volume. However, if I am in itunes and play a movie and use airplay for that, I get a lock on the volume. Is this a setting somewhere?

Can't say I've ever experienced that, let me have a look

i kinda have the same problem here...
when streaming from my iTunes library on my MBP E2011 the video is great but, because i set the apple TV to use the airplay speakers that are connected to the airport express the volume in itunes is blocked and although i set the volume of the speakers to max i can barely hear the movie...
anybody got any ideas?
