Inform Hauppauge that you got a bum remote. They've been known to send

Should work just fine. I've used a universal w/o problems with a Hauppauge IR 
receiver (lirc_i2c), an AVerMedia one (lirc_gpio) and a MCE USB one

I'm rather partial to One-for-All and/or RadioShack remotes (also made by 
OfA). You can program the heck out of them to do damn near anything, and 
they're pretty cheap. My RS one was a bit on the high side price-wise, at a 
whopping $30.

Use the current one. Of course, its possible the receiver is the part that is 
hosed, not the remote... My favorite IR receiver of the three I have is the 
MCE USB one. It has by far the best range and omni-directionality of 'em all.
