At least for the chan+/- problem I've also noticed it in 2.6.9. The
ati_remote driver that is part of that kernel source is in fact generating
/dev/input events for everything but they aren't all getting translated
into X events. You can prove this by running evtest against
/dev/input/eventX ("X"=device allocated for your ATI remote) and hitting
some buttons. (In Debian, evtest is packaged with dvb-utils.) You'll see
every button generates events. But then try xev and chan+ and chan- won't
trigger anything there.
That's as far as I've gotten. Unfortunately I can suggest nothing yet as
a solution. I've been too distracted by other issues to continue pursuing
