Even simpler, bind an unused remote button to irexec and get a script that 
toggles a player of your choice  on/off. I'm partial to mpd and can use the 
mpc command line program to play/pause. There seems to be a bit of a "when 
all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail" attitude around here. 
Don't get me wrong MythTV is fantastic but you don't need a GUI for playing
