Great job anyway.
I don't have a guide but I can give you a step by step. Firstly if it is standard MCE yes it should work. Secondly its better to have a keymap (lircd.conf) already, do you have the model of the remote; if its simply just Viao then i may have the keymap:
Otherwise you can search through here for your remote:
Other than that you will need to change the lirc.conf and the hardware.conf. In the lirc.conf change the ir_protocol: from 0 to 1.
From here run the irrecord command and do a few (not all) of the buttons. Then copy what you think is the correct keymap (lircd.conf) and test with irw until you get output. Then from here you will have to create another remote in Lircmap.xml with the name of the remote eg. for the viao remote above it would be:
<power>BUTTON IN KEYMAP</power>
<play>BUTTON IN KEYMAP</play>
Let me know if you get stuck.
