 This patch doesn't work I'm afraid.  I think the Apple remote changes in
 the 2.3 release were more substantial than just the cookie mappings.  To

 AppleTVIRReceiver (see

 I've tried changing the remote device name in this patch but it still
 doesn't work, having looked at the XBMC Apple Remote support there seems
 to have been other changes as well e.g. 'on atv >=2.3 ir handling is a bit
 broken. we get only non-press events, and those all the time.'

 I tried to get use iremoted http://github.com/jamiew/iremoted/tree/master
 to dump the cookie values but it doesn't seem to work on the appletv.
