I have a similar power on/off story with my Yamaha RX-V863. But it's clearly caused by the design of the receiver and its own remote.
There actually are TWO buttons on the Yamaha remote: (1) POWER, which turns the unit on from standby state, and (2) STANDBY, which places the unit into standby state from ON.
But the remote for the DCX3400 (i.e. whatever remote your cable company gives out, in my TWC/LA case the UE 1056B01 "big black") only has a single POWER button, so when you use the device code for the Yamaha receiver (either entering it or scanning for it) to find one that turns it off and gets it into standby you've assigned only one of the two power-related relevant buttons that Yamaha put on their own remote.
Obviously, the Yamaha receiver itself responds to two separate and distinct power-related codes... one for ON and a different one for OFF. Hence, my TWC/LA remote for the DCX3400 can only implement one of them, and I chose to use it for OFF (i.e. to correspond to the "STANDBY" button on the Yamaha remote). So I'm forced to use my finger pushing the POWER button on the face of the Yamaha receiver itself to turn it back ON (or pick up the Yamaha remote and turn the receiver on).
Actually, I think I may have tried to find if the 1056B01 could actually find the right IR code to power the Yamaha ON from standby, and I think I was unsuccessful. This was another reason I simply gave up and accepted that I'd only be able to power the Yamaha OFF using my DVR remote.
On the second issue... with the device code I ultimately used to define the AUD device (i.e. the Yamaha receiver) to power it OFF with the DCX3400 remote, and the programming ability of the TWC/LA UE 1056B01 remote, I was also able to reassign the large VOLUME UP/DOWN buttons on the remote from its default "locked" assignment to TV and re-lock it to AUD. It's a two-step process, to first un-lock the VOLUME control from its current [TV] device, and then to re-lock the VOLUME to a different [AUD, i.e. Yamaha] device.
But now that it's been unlocked, re-assigned, and relocked, my 1056B01 VOLUME buttons control the volume on the Yamaha receiver and not my TV, even when I'm using the CBL device on the remote to control the DCX3400. VERY VERY CONVENIENT.
