This can also be achieved outside of myth, or alongside myth, if you obtain a
universal programmable remote control like one of the Logitech Harmony models.
That's the way a number of us manage the ever-increasing number of devices we
seem to accumulate these days.
Programming a remote - which is designed for consumer use, after all - is
probably easier than writing code against an event signal generated by myth and
passing it to LIRC. Of course, which you choose depends on your time, expertise
and bank balance.
