I also have a lite-on keyboard (black, with cursor
button at upper right, bought from newegg at around $20).

I have programmed a Sony AV-3100 with it.  After a night of
tweaking the trick with this particular remote is to just
press the keyboard very fast (hit it and release very quickly).
Keeping the keyboard pressed while programming causes the
Sony to crash  or malfunction (requiring a system reset).
Its like, somehow the sony remote buffers choke on the lite-on
signal.  Oddly though the best way to operate my amplifier volume
control is to keep the buttons depressed while programming
the remote.

I could not program the sony with combination keys (for example
the "+" require two kepresses at the same time--just wont work for me).

perhaps that applies to your remote.
