Does it have to use the power key to power up? A lot of STBs will power up
on any channel change selection key (as my TV does) in which case use the
channel change to power up and the power key to power down.

I'm not clear on whether you are using an IR blaster to talk to the STB or
but a few experiments with the original remote may be useful...
