timelapse with k20d - 99 image limit

Hi folks I'm new to this forum. I live in the Northwest Territories of northern Canada. I'm a professional videographer and have been for more years than I care to count. For fun I camp , canoe and in the winter I run dogteam.

I am working on a project to record something over a long period of time. It's a no budget project done for love and not for $$$. I have a donated Nikon D40 set up for one view and have just been given a lovely Pentax K20D for another view. My problem is the 99 frame limit for time lapse. Can anyone tell me if the APUTURE AP-TR1C DIGITAL LCD TIMER REMOTE will override this limitation? If not will the Pclix work ?
Any help is appreciated.

If the camera is in remote mode while you're using the remote, then indeed, the limit will be lifted as the camera will behave just as it would in single-frame mode.

The 999 limit on the k-5 is retarded. The 99 limit n the K2-D is unbelievably stupid
