sounds good!
Either you use a double contact switch with the typical resistors for 
Mute in series (as on LD) or some buffering, because if you use a 
single contact with two resistors to each plex, those build a bridge 
when the button is not pressed.
I can say more about this if someone really does it.

I am very sorry for this, but cannot tell what the problem is. It 
looks like a waranty replacement case. Maybe some wrong resistor 
value or a solder bridge... I wonder how this escaped from our 
marvelous automatic autotest program?
