Ok, found my mistake.
remote.conf has to include the same button names as they appear in
lircd.conf and vdr has to be restarted when remote.conf is changed, I
thought restarting vdr-sxfe should be enough since its the application that
connects to lirc after all.

By the way, --nokbd to vdr-sxfe doesn't really ignore keyboard input for me.
Changing xorg.conf doesn't help as well, input from remote still act as a
keyboard input. But that stops as soon as there is a connection to licrd
(vdr-sxfe connects).

The only thing left now is dealing with keyboard sequences since many major
buttons on my RC sends sequences for every press (color buttons, stop, play,
FW, RW, menu...).
