what i was expecting was that when i press the ca-1 button it would be as if i had pressed the button on the camera that takes a photo.
To isolate the problem, try this - plug a USB cable into the camera and connect to a computer, then unplug it. If your camera takes a picture then you know that CHDK's usb triggering is working and the problem lies with the remote. If the camera doesn't take a picture then there's something wrong with your CHDK settings.
Thanks for that research you did. I will get a new battery and try it. Although I used the one that came with the CA-1 package.
one more thing using the one press, two press and ca-1 switch type and usb into pc resulted in the following in my case. when the usb was in, the screen went dark and the click sound, when removed screen went light and click sound, screen was dark for however long the usb was plugged into pc, i tried it with i don't know if that sheds any light on the situation.
did you try this with a sx160 is camera. I was even thinking of getting a different camera, thats how annoyed i was.
