I've been a victim of owning several AV receivers and remotes. For me  
I find the norm is more like Robert describes. Holding down the   
volume key on the remote continuously lowers or raises the volume  
until the key is released. I also own the 639 Harmony remote and can  
confirm the volume key works the same.

I've had remotes like the 15-2116 as well where holding down the key  
sends only one IR code instead of sending a repeating IR code. Having  
not owned the 15-2116 I'm assuming that's what is happening.
