Live capture with SX240 (SX260)

Hi,

Apologies if this has already been covered somewhere, I can't find it.

I'm trying to use a Canon SX240 (similar to SX260 except without GPS) for remote capture with CHDKPTP - but as soon as I connect the USB cable, the camera enters playback mode.

In playback mode I can get a live view of the viewfinder (showing previously taken images) and obviously the shoot button does nothing.

If I enable USB remote, then the camera takes a picture when I plug the USB cable into the PC as expected, but then no PTP comms.

How do I stop the camera from entering playback mode when inserting the USB cable?

Thanks in advance.

Just start in playback and use the Rec button to go into shooting mode (or use switch_mode_usb(1) from the chdkptp command line)
