Your '98 only supported the old 390 MHz frequencies, that's probably why it did work with the newer units since '05 using 315 MHz. The current Homelink supports both frequencies along with and without rolling codes.
I have a 2 new (2007) Liftmasters and noticed something interesting when I programmed Homelink for both garages,
I cleared the Homelink and selected position 1 along with button 1 on my remote. After it learned the remote I pressed the button twice and the opener flashed indicating it had learned the new remote. The interesting thing is I NEVER pressed the "learn" button on the opener!
I then went to the other door, programmed the second button on the homelink and after 2 button presses the second opener flashed again, without ever pressing the "learn" button.
You might want to try teaching the Homelink your remote's codes then trying it to see if your opener will auto learn them. I think the newer openers are a lot smarter than those of just 4 or 5 years ago.
