Okay, try this one, I set it to send the window to the bottom as soon as it opens... I think it should work, the sound dialog didn't show up on my screen when I pressed the hotkey with WMC up.

OK it is still stealing focus... I have my setup set to run media center on my 2nd monitor (LCD TV) and when that pops up on my TV the thing that switches the sound output pops up on my monitor apparently long enough to steal focus and make it so I can not control my media center with my remote (unless i hit alt-tab). Can you think of anything else to try?

I could see if I can make it give focus to Media Center after it switches the outputs if you think that'll be good.

No problem

If you would like any more features added to it, I can try my best to do it. Kinda boring with not much to do at nights.
