I've tried every combination of setting available on the sound 
configuration page. One thing I noticed was that it if I choose /dev/dsp 
then I get sound, however if I choose /dev/adsp I don't. But Nothing so 
far has allowed me to adjust the volume.

Is it possible to set the remote up to adjust the volume of the Ubuntu 
itself? Like the volume keys on my keyboard, which just seem to work.
