After some more experimentation, this I can report.
When using "learning mode" in WinLIRC with the AsusDVCR or WinDVR
applications running it is near impossible to learn a remote due to errors.
Learn the remote in WinLIRC first, don't execute DVCR / WinDVR until you
have recorded the profile. Once the profile has been learned, WinLIRC can
decode IR signals, albeit somewhat unreliably, with one of these
It also appears that certain types of remotes perform better than others,
i.e. a Sony TV remote works more consistently with WinLIRC and DVCR / WinDVR
than a JVC or Tatung VCR remote.
No problems were experienced using the abovementioned remotes with WinLIRC
and apps such as WinDVD, WinAMP, Windows Media Player, general Windows
control etc. etc.
Best bet I guess is to get a Universal remote with loads of preloaded
configurations and an ability to learn more remote functions and experiment.
Regards, thanks for a great Windoze app Jim :-)

To fix unreliablity problems, you can try increasing the tolerance for
errors by increasing the 'eps' line in the config file.
