I think you use a .lirc configuration in combination with irexec to switch?

This is indeed something I was looking for. Forgot that some options are extremely easy to resolve. But I was wondering, what remote do you use yourself and did you configure a .lircrc for vdr-sxfe? 

I want to use this configuration for my new HTPC (completely software based output) which will use Xine for VDR viewing (vdr-sxfe is somewhat unstable on my configuration). And the phrase " One Remote to rule them all" would be great :)
