No matter what the problem is the fact that you're getting  
inconsistent results is probably the key.

Do you have anything that might be interfering with IR reception?  
Flourescent lighting? Sunlight?

Is there something non-standard about that remote? Can you borrow a  
"learning" type remote and see if that works? I'm assuming the remote  
that came with the STB works OK.

Can you try a different "standard" remote? Often if you go to the  
cable office with your unit and just tell them "it's broke" they'll  
hand you another one, it might be off-spec just enough to still work  
with the STB but not a learner.

Just ideas.
