It's almost definitely your LIRC configuration, then.   Check carefully
the button names (and verify they're as defined in your
/etc/lircd.conf), the "prog = mythtv", and make sure you don't have
multiple stanzas (begin though end section) for the buttons.  Every time
you change your LIRC config (~/.lircrc or ~/.mythtv/lircrc), you'll have
to restart the LIRC client.  Every time you change /etc/lircd.conf,
you'll have to restart lircd and the LIRC client.

You may want to use irw to test--it's easier to just keep restarting irw
than constantly restarting mythfrontend.
