Here are some suggestions on getting the Microsoft MCE remote working a bit better. It works pretty well out of the box. There seem to be several versions (see: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/MCE_Remote) -- I have the center one. I wonder if all of them send out the same LIRC key codes.
1. Play button
Original maps this to "title". I mapped it to "play", like it was on the original Xbox remote.
2. More (or "i") button
Original maps this to "info". I was used to being able to get the context menu like on the Xbox remote control, so I mapped this to "title". I mapped the DVD menu button to "info" so I wouldn't lose that function.
So here's the first part of my Lircmap.xml file:
