In my .lircrc file I've got a mapping like this:

remote = grayHauppauge
prog = mythtv
button = TV
repeat = 3
config = F5

In the mythconverg database there is a table called jumppoints.  Here you can 
associate a key with a 'global' action.

mysql> select * from jumppoints where destination='Live TV' and
| destination | description | keylist | hostname              |
| Live TV     |             | F5      | localhost.localdomain |

This will zip you right to Live TV from anywhere in MythTV by pressing the TV 
button on the remote.  This also seems to work nicely for waking up
the system.
Once I get a TV picture, I can exit out of LiveTV mode and navigate around the 

I hope this is helpful...
