I would check the voltage coming off the thermopile. With a voltage meter set to DC, check leads of the thermopile at the gas valve. You should get around 500mv with the pilot burning and the burner off. If you don't, it's either a bad thermocouple (I know it's been changed) for a dirty pilot orifice not producing a strong flame.
