The only important thing is that it is recognized (noted by printing
"Pictures" next to it) by lirc.  No changes needed.

Yep.  Unless you have a special remote, I believe all the mce
transceiver buttons are all mapped.  You should not need to change the
lircd.conf file at all..  Just the .lircrc to suit your tastes (and I
even find that the defaults are mostly suitable).
