I had the same problem, with my Virgin Media Set top box (Cisco CT8620 Tivo) bought Smart Remote and programmed it manually, works a treat, and it's backed up to my Google account so when/if I flash stuff I can re-download it. (I believe it also allows other users to download it)

My personnal experience ...

the phone includes a TV Application on stock rom that works fine. Just, it starts by asking question about ADSL, TV, region ... but after answering those unrelated questions (and by the way, it forgets to ask if the TV can be controlled by LAN, Wifi ... ), you end up in an IR interface.

The IR configuration tool failed 2d ago. Since then, I have updated to 4.4.3. And rebooted several times.

The issue is that I have installed many IR apps; and after trying to use some, the IR get stuck. So, in short, the solution is: if an IR software does not work, you need to reboot before trying an other one.

Once you have identified a bunch of apps that work, you can switch between them. But, if you ever use a non working one, then, IR will never work again ... untill reboot.

Don't understand why; and don't want to know. Just reporting my experience.

With very similar interfaces: HTC IR universal works fine, Samsung IR does not.

Working for me:
- stock TV app
