In the apple tv settings there is the option to add remotes under the "remotes" section, in frontrow, not in xbmc. From there the apple tv will ask you to press buttons corresponding to what is on screen, the apple tv then remembers what each button means and they work in xbmc. There is no need for the receiver, the apple tv does all the work. Obviously this is limited to what the apple tv asks for but there is pretty good coverage of all of the basic functionality you need.
Here is the apple writeup on the functionality...
There are more buttons you can train than what is displayed in that tutorial though.
