Give the user permission via sudo. Something like:
mythtv ALL=NOPASSWD: /etc/init.d/mythbackend
Then user mythtv can do "sudo /etc/init.d/mythbackend restart".

Run irexec and add something like this to your lircrc:
# Power Off/Exit
prog = irexec
button = OFF
config = /script/to/re-cycle/everything
