Assuming COS is connected to the Volume Down pin on the CM108 then how about 
plugging the fob into another PC which is not running the Asterisk drivers 
and see if the volume control is affected when COS is asserted?

On my PC, if I press volume down, either on the keyboard or on an unmodified 
USB sound fob then a volume bar pops up in the centre of the screen.  It's 
very visible.

Naturally, there may be a 'correct' way to do this with some sort of built-in 
diagnostics...
