It's probably being configured to use the input layer (like keyboards
and mice), which will allow some/all remote keys to work, depending on
the remote.

If this is the case, you may want to try running LIRC with the
'devinput' driver to try to get all of the keys working, and use the
correct input device, which you should be able to find by running:

$ ls -l /dev/input/by-path/ | grep -i "ir"

I can't identify the remote for you, but you can get a lircd.conf to
test with (suitable to use with the LIRC devinput driver) from:
