You're have a problem with your ir receiver and capture card, but you  
haven't told us which ir receiver or capture card you have, so it's  
kind of hard to give advice. However, I've heard of this happening  
when the capture card and ir receiver are sharing the same IRQ. Check  
that out and try putting the capture card in another slot on the  
motherboard to see if it helps.
