It always registers, no matter whether there is an ir receiver or not.

This will only work if you have loaded a keymap.

Is the IR receiver connected to the card or to the CI?

From remote plugin FAQ:
| 2.2.1 The remote control does not work, if a CI is connected
|       ------------------------------------------------------
| Whenever a CI is connected, the on-board connector will be disabled!
| On some CIs there is a jumper to select whether the receiver of the CI
| or the receiver of the FF-card should be used. RTFM.
| If not, use the integrated receiver of the CI,
| or connect the receiver to the ir connector of the CI.

(Remove the 0 Ohm resistor.)
