I have a similar setup. I use my Myth box both as a Linux desktop and 
for MythTV. The desktop runs on vt9 and Mythfrontend runs on vt8.

Can I configure LIRC to switch to the MythTV VT when I press the "power" 
button on my Hauppauge remote? Do you happen to have an example .lircrc?

Best regards,
