As far as I can tell reading the MythTV documentation, there doesn't 
appear to be support for the X10 remote (not the mouseremote, but the 
entertainment anywhere remote).  This device uses (I believe) a RF 
receiver connected to a serial port.

I'm going to take a shot at creating a patch that allows this remote to 
work with MythTV, but I'd like to first learn how lirc support was added 
to MythTV.  I've searched for 'lirc' in most of the files and can't 
seem to find it referenced anywhere.  What are the relavent files for this 
type of input into MythTV?

I'm going to start by building some proof-of-concept code for reading and 
recognizing the different remote control keys from the serial port (this 
seems fairly straight-forward when looking at the x10mp3 XMMS plugin for 
this remote control)
