I have a Mac Pro running VMWare Fusion. In the VM, I'm running Windows 7 Pro. Right now the media buttons (<<, >||, >>, mute, volume down/up buttons) all are sent to the OSX instead of to the Win7Pro VM, even when the VM is full screen mode.

Does anyone know how to direct these media buttons on the keyboard to the VM instance running Win7Pro instead of OSX?

BTW, I have inverted the function keys so that you have to press 'fn' before pressing one of them to access the picture printed on the key (e.g., <<, >||, >>, etc.). Pressing them without 'fn' sends the pressed function key to Win7Pro (e.g., F1, F2, F3, etc.).
