I haven't had the problem you cite about its response to other remotes. I use it with a Harmony remote with no problems.
As for use with a subwoofer, my advice, for what it is worth, is to first turn the sub off and adjust the SS for the best sound setting the SS bass control in the middle. Then, using a good signal, I would turn on the sub with the volume down and raise it very gradually until you hear it only on musical material where you know that there is bass. Most of the time, like during speech, you should not be aware of it being on at all. As the sound transmissions can vary considerably in the bass you can then use the SS bass control to adjust it to your liking for each program. You can also try the above with different crossovers. Anyway, that's what I have been doing.
But it was adjusting the treble that made the most difference. I got the idea from a little 24" led tv in my home office. Overall the sound from it is not very good across the board, but the higher frequencies are and the sound is unusually clear and crisp with the speech very intelligible. Simulating that treble in the SS brought it to life. As delivered, with the eq flat, it is extremely muffled IMO. I hinted at that in an earlier post but it took me a while to get the courage to really try this.
