I use one remote for both, I toggle with one button between 3 modes.
mode 1
   vdr-sxfe on Plasma TV and graphttft-fe on TFT in case
mode 2
   xbmc on Plasma TV and graphttft-fe on TFT in case
mode 3
   nothing on Plasma TV and xbmc on TFT in case
I start vdr with --lirc=/dev/null so that it doesn't react on the remote.
Vdr-sxfe ist started with --lirc. Vdr-sxfe is never started the same time
that xmbc is running, so I can use the same remote for both.
