Can CHDK enable tethered shooting or remote preview on a Canon G15

Hi everyone - I'm new here.  Thanks to all the folks whose work makes CHDK possible.

I know that Canon no longer supports tethered shooting on the G series models after G10 and I'm wondering whether it is possible to get around this limitation using CHDK.  I don't need to actually trigger the camera from the computer (I have a remote that works just fine) but I would like to make the preview of the picture I just took appear on the computer (or on any larger screen) so I can tell quickly if I've got the shot I need.

Any suggestions?

Thank you
David

Yup .. .all possible.  Including remote shot trigger.

but I'd suggest looking at chdkptp's live view first : http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=6231.0

Thank you, that sounds great!  Is there a GUI for Live View at this time, or do I pretty much have to develop my own interface?

chdkptp has a GUI for live view.

Here's a somewhat out of date screenshot
Don't forget what the H stands for.
