Thank you, thank you. I thought I was the only one with this criticism. The lack of a mute button on the ATV remote means I had to make a plexiglass plate with Velcro strips to hold two remotes — the ATV remote and a Channel Master remote that does have a Mute button on it. I love the Steve Jobs legacy of “simple is better” but the ATV remote went TOO simple. It needs just one more button: a mute button, danggummit!
