    Anyone using this combo out there? If so can you provide any setup tips? I have the 509 and just ordered the MX-500.

    thanks

    I don't have any experience with the Kenwood receiver, but I love my MX-500. I don't think you will have any problems, as the remote is easy to program and use. Have you tried the bulletin board over at remotecentral.com? That place is great!
    EDIT:
    Here's a SEARCH I did for the VR509.

    i also have the mx-500. it's so flexible, it replaced eight of my other remotes without a single hitch.
    you may be better off programming the remote from scratch. i found that it took slightly longer, but you can get the remote to exactly duplicate any button/function on an existing remote.
    it should work absolutely fine for you.

    Brian, it looks like you get to be the guinea pig on this. [​IMG]
