This is how I do it - drop a link to irexec in ~/.kde/Autostart
telling it to use the .lircrc file with a suitably configured button
(typically the ON/POWER button) which in turn runs a script that
either starts the frontend is one isn't running, or if it is and has
crashed, restarts it.

Check out the myth power button script on Jarod's MythTV howto pages.
