6d Mark ii - Drive Mode with remote controller option

Hello, I am trying to set up a remote control to fire, but it is not showing the option with control to select, only with the timer. I updated the firmware but it did not work. Is there any other configuration for this?

I think that is how it works.  You must set the camera to self timer mode, 2 seconds or 10 seconds, to use a wired remote.

I think for wireless remote, you must set camera to self timer mode but you don't have to when using wired remote.

Well, I managed to make the controls appear.
But I'm not really sure what the specific change is to do this.

 

1) I updated the camera firmware (but did not change the option)

2) Reset the camera settings. This made the camera show the controls. (like in the picture).

 

But I do not know which option activates or deactivates this function, does anyone know?

Thanks

The symbols you now see are for Infrared remote like the RC-6 only You may have been playing around with Bluetooth remote, and according to the manual, that would disable the Infrared remote.
