Like I said, I disabled the IR-reciever during my OSX Snow Leopard period and that option is gone in OSX Lion..
That's my problem! I can't activate it again! The remote works fine with my Mac Mini (OSX Lion) but I use a Harmony Remote there instead..
So the pairing isn't really the issue here, it's reactivating the built-in IR reciever in my iMac that is the issue

Just clicked on the padlock and went into Advanced settings.. =)
How easy was that!? Didn't think they moved that option into there.. Saw lots of tips to install RemoteBuddy or CandleAir but that's not necessary!

Ok then, my bad. Then I'd suggest creating a new user and seeing if the setting is there. If it is, then you could reset your preferences for the user but then you'd lose your entire settings in the System Preferences (e.g. iCloud settings, resolution, etc):
Finder -> Go (press Option(Alt) at this point) -> Library. In the Library find Preferences -> select all files that start with com.apple.preference... and move them to the desktop. Then log out of your user and log back in, all your settings should be reset and see if you can find the settings then.
If the settings isn't there on the other user as well, you can try resetting the SMC: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964
Which for essentially means that you switch off your iMac -> pull out power cable for ten seconds -> put it back in and start up normally.
Hope your issue gets resolved
