Musical Fidelity remote codes for universal remote

I do have my a5 integrated's original remote...but prefer another so I can prog it with other equipments remotes too. This is my second "learning remote" each time have been left with a kind of flakey volume control...(those that have tried will know what I am saying)...volume works intermittently rather than smoothly with the original. (have to have two up down keys and alternate).

Anyone know if they share another manufacturer's operation would be more consistent?

I have the feeling using a compatible code will work better than learning the function. But then again, maybe MF does something unique...?
The best bet would be one of Phillips according to past experience with other hi fi units. I have a Nuvista M3 and a Kw line stage but haven't had [or wanted] to use a universal remote. I get most of my exercise looking for the three or four I use now.
revive an old post did you ever find the codes for that nuvista i still have a m3 and my remote got damaged...
No...the mf approach is  flakey as hell....never found anything as as stable as an original mf remote...proprietary its best. So sad.
I read somewhere pioneer remotes will work there CD players.
