I don't use your distro, but I can say that learning using the UIRT2 can 
be pretty difficult.

In my experience, you do want to use usb_uirt_raw. You might try looking 
for a .conf file for your remote; there are lots out there. Often times, 
even if you find one that's from another Denon remote, it will work at 
least partially.

And, if you do find a .conf file for which some of the buttons work and 
others don't, you can use that as an input to irrecord. It will skip the 
initial testing of the remote's protocol, use what's already in the 
file, and only ask you to describe and record buttons.
