How can I remap the Apple TV 2 remote buttons in XBMC?

Is this possible? I know how to do it on a PC you can change the keymap.xml to your liking, how can I do this on my ATV2?

I just want the up/down buttons to skip chapters instead of volume control because my receiver does that for me already and FF/RW is not very fast or good as it sits right now.

Any help would be appreciated.

It's the same as you would on a PC. Just use Cyberduck (wiki) to make an SFTP connection to the ATV2 ( user:mobile, password(Defualt):alpine ) and follow these instructions: Alternative Joystick.AppleRemote.xml for ATV2 (wiki)

You can make easy links to the Kodi Wiki Manual using double brackets around common Kodi words: [[debug log]] = debug log (wiki), [[Video library]] = Video library (wiki), [[SMB]] = SMB (wiki) , [[userdata]] = userdata (wiki), etc

How do you remap to volume instead of fast forward, I try deleting it but won't work though.
