    Lifted from RemoteCentral.

    All recent remote models do not feature the light sensor due to European environmental restrictions. The light sensor contained trace amounts of a banned substance, and as all models are manufactured in Belgium it was removed altogether.

    Although units with a light sensor place it under a small clear circle near the top right-hand corner of the remote, all remotes with that spot do not actually have the sensor.

    To check if your unit truly has the sensor, go to the remote's setup menu by pressing and holding the Pronto icon for three seconds. Scroll to panel two. If the "Light Sensor" bar constantly reads 50% and will not change by changing the lighting environment around the remote, it does not have the light sensor. If the bar jumps around and appears to reflect the current lighting situation, it has one.
