I also have the same remote, this is a copy of my file:
http://mythtv.mrjpiggott.net/lircrc  (it lives in ~/.mythtv/lircrc) most
buttons should do what you would expect.  Note that I only have a single
tuner in my system so I don't have anything setup for PiP, tuner switch etc.

For the original person, as I understand it the MCE remote is a
specification and that there are different implementations of it.  Some
models are apparently 'learning' remotes for which power, volume and mute
can be learned from other remotes; however you could use the IR blaster.
