Considering your RPi is going to be the frontend, my best guess would that your
IR receiver must beconnected to your RPi.

The easiest way to get the 2nd solution running has to be the MiniDVBLinux
distribution (http://www.minidvblinux.de/) for your RPi v1 or v2. While the
site and parts of the software is in German, I was able to get it up and
running quite easily.

That sounds correct.

Well, I really liked the MLD distro with my old RPi v1 and a MCE remote. The
zapping speed was quite good andissues were minimal. Then again, I tested this
like 3 months back; so my guess would be that there are quite a number of
improvements made since I last tested this.
