Changing function of volume buttons?

I've tried with out much success to change the function of the volume controls when held down so that they scroll up and down instead of launching voice dial or recorder.

It's probably glaringly obvious but i was just wondering if there is a reg entry i can change as if you go to settings\buttons and change to scroll up and down respectively it only shifts once?

Tried smartskeys but it didn't do anything.

Cheers in advance

I've tried a few apps now, that people have used on other devices, without any luck. They either don't do anything or stop the buttons from doing the volume.

I think the reg is under HKCU somewhere but haven't had a good look yet.

I want to find the reg entries that pertain to the up down for the dpad and then find the reg entries for the volume buttons when held down and change them for the ones for the dpad.

Problem is i don't know what they are called. Yet

I've found the reg entries so now i just need to work out where to point them to:-

HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\SHELL\KEYS

40C1 = button 1 which is camera
40C2 = button 2 which is voice speed dial
40C3 = button 3 which is voice recorder

Anyone know where the reg entries for the dpad are?

Strange
I thought this was as simple as changing the settings > buttons - setting from Voice Recorder to tbd and the Voice Dialer to tbd, did that but it still only changes the bloody volume.

Ideally i like an easy access, OK and Start Menu key.
