I used some help from this thread on the Raspberry Pi forums:
www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=9527&p=114049&hilit=xbox#p114049

I've just started again with build r11691 and I had to do the same on r11493. the problem i had with the earlier build is that when the Pi is restarted after the remote is working, sometimes the remote will stop working. I can't figure out what the heck is going on and maybe someone can figure it out. after it stops working, its still being detected in 'dmesg' so I dont know where the conflict is.

EDIT: i just did a reboot on my Pi because i forgot to disconnect my keyboard and my remote still works. i hope it doesn't give out on me with future boots.

I normally max out the volume on the Pi and let the TV adjust accordingly.
