You did not mention how you crow your reeds. I find that I must make reeds that crow C when the lips are on the cane next to the thread and also crow C when the lips are on the very tip of the reed. My oboes then generally are ok on pitch.

Since you mentioned the flute, one can try the recommendations of James Galway and play with a serious frowning embouchure, aiming the air at the toes. Even the third register can be in tune without any problems or playing up or down. It has been called the "professional embouchure". Good luck!
