You need a properly configured "keymap" for your remote control in 
~/.mythtv/lircrc to control MythTV

Almost all apps that support lirc natively (mplayer and Xine for example) 
read their config information from ~/.lircrc. MythTV is a special case, as 
it uses it's own custom lircrc as shown above.

I've not tried it myself (my ~/.lircrc is for xine only, as it's all that's 
used on this system), but I imagine you can put multiple entries in it for 
different programs like so:

         prog = xine
         button = CH+
         repeat = 3
         config = EventUp

         prog = someotherapp
         button = CH+
         repeat = 3
         config = DoSomething
