the remote does work but I cannot remember how. I do recall that it is not
user friendly.
Not of much use to me so I played no more
I bought one of these cameras a few months back and played with the remote.
It is quite functional, just badly configuered.

IIRC the operational instruction is buried somewhere in the sub/sub/sub
The instruction manual on cd contains those instructions. Somewhere.
Take a deep breath and be prepared for a long afternoon's reading.

Good luck,
