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)

Full disclosure: I work for WeTek. However, this is my personal account, and my words and opinion are my own.

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.
