Do have have entries in your lircrc file like

prog = xine
button = RED
repeat = 3
config = Quit

You also need to make sure you have a file ~/.lircrc (which xine uses
but myth doesn't). Usually one is symlinked to the other so both
mythtv and your chosen media player can use the same file.

The button 'names' are those set in /etc/lircd.conf in the appropriate
remote section. xine also contains details of all possible lircable
commands in case there are particular commands you want to be able to
control but Jarod's example file does not contain.
