K3-II movie mode IR remote triggering?

Hey, I'm probably crazy... but on my K-50 I can trigger video recording using an IR remote, but for the life of me I have found no way to do so on the K3-II... I've dug around in menus, etc... IR remote works in all other modes but video. Any clues?

If you go in the drive mode menu while in video mode, you should see an option to enable the remote. I know for sure this is available on the K-1 and I don't see why it wouldn't be there on the K-3.
