It actually depends on what IR hardware you are using. There are 2 
general types: those which receive and pass along raw codes, and those 
which receive and can decode the IR, passing along key-codes, as if the 
receiver were a keyboard.

With an imon or mce receiver, you can use the devinput conf file as the 
new kernel modules produce key-codes. MCE units can also operate in 
'raw' mode, using a different module.

With a devinput-compliant module, mapping the devinput keys to what you 
want myth (or xine, or mplayer) to do, is taken care of in lircrc.

If you already have a remote set up, then the tricky bit is using the 
Logitech website to map keys on the remote to the key-press actions 
which the site lists....So you will have to decide which physical key to 
use for which action, and that is up to you.
( I have not tried the concordance linux software which is supposed to 
be an all linux replacement for the logitech online setup system.)
