I will do the tests momentarily.  There does seem to be an issue that I can't say happens all the time, but has several times.  When I use the JPG Remote Shoot function the live display does not go back to live.  It will stay on the shot I just took.  If I switch to play mode and back it returns to live.

The bad news is I don't know lua well enough to make some changes to the CHDK PTP interface to customize it the way I'd like, yet.
Try the attached gui.lua.

I ran the test, one failure, the log file is attached.  DNG and Raw appear to be working fine.  I really appreciate all the effort.

Nice!  Works great.  I have noticed before, and on this version as well, that the disp button does not work like it does on the camera.  I don't know if I'm just impatient and pushing it again before the camera executes the command, but I loose other functionality, like the ability to take a shot until I go to play and back to rec.  Here's the error message I got: 

WARNING: capture_get_data error ... Photo, Imaging\CHDK\CHDK PTP - Right Side\lua\chdku.lua:1338: timed out
ERROR: ... Photo, Imaging\CHDK\CHDK PTP - Right Side\lua\chdku.lua:1338: timed out

Oops, my last replay was supposed to be to this post.  Sorry.

After using the new gui.lua and firmware build for a few shots the main alt menu shows up on the screen and won't go away.  Pictures are also not being downloaded when in this state.  Switching to play and back to rec fixes it.

I notice that is is showing ubasic functionality in the bottom left hand corner with the main alt menu up.  Do I need to do something to put it back to normal?

This is probably a problem in the remote capture code.

You may get some additional information in the console if you use
set cli_verbose=2
in the console before starting to use remoteshoot.

If you raw enabled in the canon firmware, this may interfere with the remote shooting process.

The 'alt' display appears when the camera is running a script. If you are getting the timeout error described above, you will probably see this until it times out.

When you say "switching to play and back to rec", are you doing this through chdkptp, or with the physical controls on the camera? In general, using the physical play/rec controls on the camera while controlling via chdkptp tends to cause problems.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

I did turn off raw capture after I tested the functionality.

I made the switch from rec to play and back using CHDK PTP.

I'll issue the set cli_verbose=2 command when I test again.
