To echo what others have said, for me "it just works". The Mac OS X 
builds of MFE include both verisons of the code: LIRC and Apple Remote.

The two remotes are independent, and either can be used on the same FE. 
When I'm at home, I have MFE listen on a network connection to the 
receiver that's hooked up to my server. It reads an RF remote, and 
requires a ~/.lircrc file.

When I'm away from home, I use the Apple Remote. It just works, and 
doesn't need a .lircrc. All you have to do is make sure your remote is 
properly "paired" to your Mac. If Frontrow works, MFE should work.
