For some reason the option is not available on my Late 2008 Macbook Pro.
Any other ideas?

Sorry, but my late 2009 MacBook Pro running Mountain Lion continues to be be controlled by the ATV2 remote after disabling remotes in system preferences. Anyone else having the issue or has a solution?

Any chance you've installed Candleair or another 3rd party driver?
In the case, of Candleair, it has it's own System Preference Pane where you can disable remotes.
That turned out to be my problem. Once, I uninstalled Candleair the Apple Preferences returned.
