Default Controlling Yamaha AV volume with Sony RMT-B107P remote/BDP-S470 DVD player

We have just procured a Sony BDP-S470 DVD Player, with RMT-B107P remote, which is fed through a Yamaha RX-V565 AV unit and projector.
With the previous DVD player - a Panasonic DMP-BD85EB-K - we were able to control the AV volume from the Panasonic remote, having coded it as per the Panasonic instruction book. The Sony book gives no information to do this.
Any one know how to progamme the Sony handset to achieve this?

I don't think a Sony blu-ray player remote is capable of controlling a receiver. You might look into whether the Yamaha remote can control multiple devices including your blu-ray player. You might also keep an eye open for a sale priced Logitech Harmony remote to control everything in your setup. Once you've had one of those, you will most likely never look back. About the only thing they cannot do is pop the popcorn for you . . .

Thanks for the response.
Since I posted, I've noticed a schedule in the handbook of "Code Numbers of Controllable TVs" - so the handset can be configured somewhat.
However, the code numbers given for other TV manufacturers products don't correspond to the codes given in the Panasonic handbook for equivalent equipment. So it seems each manufacturer has its own code set. Until I know if Sony has a code for the Yamaha I'm stuck!
Thanks for your help anyway.#
