[mythtv-users] A few questions (Directv, lirc priority)

Reading some information about using directv has me a little confused as
to how it works. The thing that has me confused is if you have several
directv stb's. Now if you have lets say 4 for example, and you want to
use a serial connection to the box to change the channel and such, is
there a way to do this that I am not seeing? Or can you only control 1
box via serial since most computers only have 1 serial port. So my
question is, how can you control more than 1 directv box individually
from a single backend?
Relating to the above question, what if you have multiple frontends
controlling a backend with multiple tuners without any STBs, just
standard analog cable. Do most people just make an IR receiver for their
front ends or am I missing something?
Finally, my next question involves lirc client application priority.
What determines which application has priority over the remote control
button presses? For example, if I have irexec, xine, and mythfrontend
all running, is it simply the application with focus that has priority?
