Nothing special, it is a mediacenter Philips remote that came with my
OriginAE case. Later I will use my Harmony 555 that has already learned
the codes from the Philips remote. The case has a remote receiver from
the company irtrans, they provide a lirc compatible server named irserver.

I use a lircrc, but not for vdr-sxfe. Vdr-sxfe doesn't need a lircrc,  
the remote.conf from the vdr is all you need. The lircrc only reacts  
on one unused button on the remote and toggles the modes. It is very  
short. I am not completely
ready with it, I did it yesterday evening only. What is missing is that I
intercept the power button and if vdr-sxfe is currently not seen I  
will switch to tv mode and then send the power button to vdr-sxfe so  
that the vdr has a chance to
say no and I will see the reason why it wouldn't like to power down.
