IR Shutter Remote


I have purchased an IR remote for my K-r but cant seem to get it to work. I have tried different batteries but someone has mentioned that you need to set the camera to "remote" under the shutter settings. However, I cant seem to find this within my camera, hopefully someone can help & that it's not me being a complete numpty.
