Franco, my research last night shows xine and mplayer use different .lircrc
files. Xine as far as I can tell is hard coded to ~/.lircrc (although I
can't get it working yet). mplayer allows you to specify -lircconf so I
start mplayer like this:
mplayer -lircconf ~/.mythtv/lirc-mplayer (and that actually works).
I edited my lirc-mplayer according to what I found by google searching and
it works. Xine is another story. Still working on it.
