K-x Remote+Exposure Bracketing?

Hey guys,

I've been through the user manual a few times and just general trial & error looking for the one feature I can't seem to find.

Using the IR remote while using exposure bracketing for HDR captures. Not the in-camera .jpg stuff, real +/- three RAW files.

The way I understand it is that you can only use the remote for single exposures, for bracketing you have to press the actual shutter release three times.

Not a huge issue, but anyone that's done quality HDR's knows that any amount of camera movement causes unwanted effects when combining the exposures in PP, so a remote way to trigger the brackets would be slick.
Can it be done, am I just not seeing it? Or is this just wishful thinking?

Thanks for your time

I'm not sure about your K-x, but on my K-7, it's in the Custom Functions menu. Option 7, One-Push Bracketing. Changing this to "On" makes the camera take all the exposures in one go while keeping the mirror up the whole time.

edit: I just had a look in the K-x manual and I don't see that option there. Must not be doable.
