Volume lock is more a function of the remote than the box - by default the bos is usually set to "stereo optimal". Checking my box that's about 4 marks down from MAX. If you have the box set to it's own volume you'll get a little notation that says "STEREO" when you hit that mark.
Most remotes are set to lock the Volume on the TV. You can change this (instructions are in your remote manual - most remotes have instructions that can be found here http://webpages.charter.net/remotes/
You can lock the volume to any specific device
Remotes are set by default to lock TV and Cable Box to TV, but can lock Cable to Cable and TV to TV - At home I set mine so that Aux, DVD, TV and Cbl are all locked to my Aux (home theater) At work I lock each function to it's own device so I can control the cable box as needed.
At home I have mine locked to the Aux device (my home theater) - because of the lock it does not matter if I hit the DVR, TV or Cable buttons at the top, Volume and Mute will always be handled by my home theater.
Now on the new "standard" silver remote we are supposed to be using with the DVRs you should be able to set it like so:
Hold the device button you want to lock & ok/Sel for 3 seconds
Press VOL +
Press the Device button you want to lock Audio to
Generally whatever your main audio is going to be (usually TV) you'll want to lock Cable on that so that it doesn't matter if you hit the TV button or the CBL button you'll be adjusting your TV volume.
