It seems to me you could probably do something where you set up the
global key bindings for the "mythtv" program in the lircrc file, then
when you need to override the defaults you use a specialty program,
like "mythmusic" or maybe a more namespace-like "mythtv:mythmusic".
That way you wouldn't need to repeat things that exist in a lot of
different contexts (fast-forward).
It's not an easy problem to solve, and it could be that MythTV or
LIRC aren't flexible enough to do what I'm proposing, but I think it
is the approach that offers the most options.
