I believe that I read somewhere that CFL lamps can have this adverse affect and applying a Sky supplied stick-on clear plastic strip over the IR remote window on the decoder fixed it. I've not heard of led problems to date.
When the problem with the remote occurred I googled it and saw the info about the Sky supplied filter on an old geekzone post. I tried all sorts of filter options including a sunglass lense but nothing worked. I swapped out the LED bulb as a last resort, so it was really just a fluke.
