On your .lircrc question...you want to see if any of the files you
already have are symlinks or not.  xine looks as .lircrc in the home
directory (/home/mythtv/.lircrc).  In my case that's a link to
/home/mythtv/.mythtv/lircrc (what myth uses), and I have all the
mappings for both xine and mythtv in /home/mythtv/.mythtv/lircrc.

Also, I'm not sure what you're referring to in the above post, but the
mappings used for xine  have nothing to do with those used for mythtv.
 I'm assuming that you mean "Back/Exit" is an lirc button name(??).
If so the only thing in .lircrc that will affect it's use in xine
would look line this:

       button = Back/Exit
       prog   = xine
       repeat = 0
       config = Quit

...and again, the -pq option has nothing to do with quitting the
program manually with the keyboard or remote...all it does is cause
xine to quit automatically when playback ends (the end of the media
you're playing).

By the way...if you want a template of all xine possible xine lirc
buttons, this:

xine --keymap=lirc > somefile.txt

...will create a text file with all of them.
