There's a frontend config option that lets you launch a program on each remote
button press.  I've actually got it running a small script so I can easily edit
it.  I'm not at home so I can't tell you exactly where the config option is.
I'm attaching the 1 line script and the click sound I use; put the script
somewhere like /usr/local/bin, and the sound in /usr/local/share/sounds/mythtv
(create it if necessary), and configure myth to execute click.sh on button
press and you're good to go.
