Remote control RMT-NWS20 for NW-WM1

Hi,

 

 I am having a bit of a problem here. Apperently remote control RMT-NWS20 that can connect to walkmen like NW-WM1 by bluetooth does not work with North America version of NW-WM1 Smiley Sad Basicly i made a mistake buying the remote control on e-bay. I am sure RMT-NWS20 works fine its just the walkmen does not have the option to add that particular accessory, it does not have the option called something like "add remote control" under bluetooth. I have no idea why North America version of this player does not have this ON but i was just wondering if anyone knows the work around for that. This is such a shame not being able to use it Smiley Sad

 

 Let me know if you have any ideas.

Don't know if you've already found the solution or not, but here's what I did since I was in the same boat:

 

Follow this guide here to change the destination of your walkman https://www.rockbox.org/wiki/SonyNWDestTool#GettingTool

 

I changed mine from the North American (U) model to the Asia/Australia/NZ (E) and then the "remote control setting" appeared!

 

Still don't understand why Sony isn't selling/supporting the remote for U.S. models of WM1A/Z since many owners (including myself) would like to use the remote without such hassle.
