Does it present itself to the OS as a proper USB HID device? HID devices 
are meant to work out of the box (you need kernel support for it).

You can use the hotkeys and/or xmodmap to edit and define what different 
keypresses do. If you want to know what keyboard codes your remote is 
using, try sing xmodmap in "scan" mode. Key presses should present 
themselves as a 3-digit code.
