This may be unimportant but I notice that before running lircd, /dev/lircd already links to /var/run/lirc/lircd even thought it doesn't exist.

I gather that this is sort of "normal" with "^[[B" representing the sequence ESCAPE "[" "B" which is the code for KEY_DOWN. I expect that you would get the same if you pressed those keys on your keyboard.

This suggests that your lircd.conf is not mapping the correct keycodes and that your protocol and keymapping is correct. Try using lircd.conf.devinput (/usr/share/lirc/remotes/devinput/lircd.conf.devinput or wherever).
