The great thing about a learning remote, is that you can actually create your own sort of punch through by learning any code to almost any button. So you could learn the Audio Receiver's arrow keys to the DVD player's device (why? I don't know ). You could learn the number buttons from your TV onto the VCR device. This essentially removes the limitation of what the remote gives you in terms of actual punch through capabilities, although you'd probably want to learn the real codes somewhere on the remote for a future need.
Ahh! I didn't realize Mute would be included with Volume. I have to confess to have skipped through the manual rather than having read it... I tried, but got too excited and had to jump ahead I was pretty skeptical that a "universal" remote would really work for me, but it looks like all of my other remotes can be consigned to a box in the closet very soon :-D

Just be careful that you don't try to use a learned key when it is being punched-through from another page. It is a common mistake with the MX-500 to forget to undo the punch-through and think that the learning isn't working.
