I suspect that your problem is that lirc detects multiple remote recivers,
the one in your case and the one on the card.
Im working on a similar problem at home sto this is BETA info!

Run the command irw do you get anything when you push the keys ?
If not do an ls /dev/lirc* I suspect that you get several lirc and lircd
there, so for each lircd do
irw /dev/lircd(number)  and try with the remote
No signal, you might need to modify /etc/init.d/lirc and change /dev/lirc0
to /dev/lirc1 and /dev/lirc/0 to /dev/lirc/1

Then try to run irw again.

Once you get something back from irw on /dev/lircd you should be good to go.
