1) unplug your device
2) make sure new drivers are installed
3) reboot your machine
4) modprobe dvb-usb-af9015 debug=2
5) tail -f /var/log/messages
6) plug stick (now it should start pushing lines to /var/log/messages 
(or /var/log/debug) ?)

Remote buttons should now recognized in debug dumps.

It does not work because driver does not have mappings to your remote 
controller buttons yet. You should find correct mappings from debug dump 
described above.
