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 :)

I have just one remote in my livingroom. Since my LG LCD has an RS232 port I
can control power and volume on if from my .lircrc and some perl scripts. So
with the "Start" button on my MCE remote (only good thing Microsoft ever
made) the TV is powered and vdr-sxfe started. And the power button shuts
everything down. Very high WAF/KAF. Now I intend to have some other button
start XBMC instead to see if it's any good.
