Remote AF with K-7

After setting the AF on with remote it does not appear to function with my generic remote.
Shutter will release, but no AF is achieved. Will this function work with the Pentax F remote? Does anyone use this feature?

Thanks

I have a generic remote and AF with remote (once set in the custom menu) works on my K-7.

This might be a silly question, but is the focus switch set to AF-S or AF-C? If it's set to AF-C, then it won't AF first; the shutter will release. If you set it to AF-S, and press the remote button, the camera will firstly AF, then release the shutter.

The "AF with Remote" Custom setting does not work in the Green Mode.
It goes back to default, which is AF only with Half-Press Shutter Button.

Try switching to Program Mode, which is almost equally Automatic.
