Usually the problem is related to the pulse and space length.  The homebrew receiver is typically increases the pulse lengths by 100-200 (and decreases the space lengths by the same amount).
In an analyzed configuration file, you'll see things like:
header 2520 440
one     714   486
try adding to 100 to the second number and subtracting 100 from the first number in each line. looking at a configuration file would be much more helpful.

Use LIRC to create the config file. WinLIRC most likely did not get it
right. And next time show us the config file.
