Just follow the steps in the tutorial. The Kinect cannot stream color and IR at the simultaneously, but the tutorial contains detailed explanations how to work around that.

As I wrote: it is impossible to get IR and RGB data at the same time. This is okay. The tutorial explains how to first record a rosbag of RGB data, and then IR data. Please follow the tutorial step by step.
