It seems to me you could probably do something where you set up the  
global key bindings for the "mythtv" program in the lircrc file, then  
when you need to override the defaults you use a specialty program,  
like "mythmusic" or maybe a more namespace-like "mythtv:mythmusic".   
That way you wouldn't need to repeat things that exist in a lot of  
different contexts (fast-forward).

It's not an easy problem to solve, and it could be that MythTV or  
LIRC aren't flexible enough to do what I'm proposing, but I think it  
is the approach that offers the most options.
