It is likely that both the iMON nad MCE remotes are creating /dev/lircN 
devices and your distribution's LIRC init script is causing lircd to use 
the /dev/lircN created by iMON rather then MCE. You should be able to 
handle this creating a udev rule that creates a symlink to the MCE 
/dev/lircN device (based on the MCE devices USB vendor and product ids) 
and configuring init to use the symlink as the device.
