You are consistently only receiving four raw values. Most real IR codes are much longer than that so something is not right with the IR receiver. Possibilities:

There is interference from lighting. Some receivers need an additional IR optical filter.

Your remote is too close or distant from the receiver. Some receivers work best when the remote is at least 500mm away.

The receiver is unsuitable or defective.

When debugging problems like this, it is a great advantage to have access to an oscilloscope (expensive) or a USB logic analyzer (Eu 20). Otherwise you can only keep changing things until you get better results.
