I suspect your  mce "compatible" remote is generating key codes which 
are not recognised by X and hence mythtv.
If your remote is being treated as a HID (Human Interface Device) there 
is a good write up at https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/HID_Remotes

The ir-keytable solution worked for me on a raspberry pi 3

If you are really lucky the RC6 keytable in the write up may work for 
your remote.

You will need to install ir-keytable and evtest  (sudo apt install 
ir-keytable evtest)
On raspberry pi you need sudo infront of the ir-keytable and evtest commands

Once the mapping has been sorted out you can use Edit Keys in 
mythfrontend to complete your setup
