I'm having the exact issue with my Hudson Bay. Initially thought it was my pilot assembly and reinstalled a new one, same issue. Tore stove apart and gave a good cleaning including the burner, same issue.

I was able to maintain flame after leaving the bottom of the door open so fresh combustion air could enter. Flame established and after burning for a couple minutes I was able to lock the front access door and stove stayed lit.

Stove has been installed for over 7 years with no issues prior to this season. No change or adjustments have been made to vent piping which uses the chimney.

Based on the posts above, am I correct in saying combustion air comes in through the vent piping? I would have assumed combustion air was from the front vents above front glass.

Until I fix this problem I won't be able to use my remote thermostat.
