I am using CHDK 1.2 on a Canon A530 and I'm triggering the interval.bas script via USB. The problem is, I can start the script but can't stop it, using the USB cable. I found the thread Remote USB trigger -start and stop script and tried the script posted by WaterwingZ without success. Is there a setting that enables stopping a script? If not, what code do I need to add to the script to get this functionality?
I had to use M mode for best results.
Actually I meant best performance of the remote but now I'm not so sure. 'Auto' required 2 USB on/off cycles to stop the script. 'M' and 'P' only required one when I briefly tested the script. Just now I tested all 3 modes and they all worked with just one cycle. However, earlier I ran the script for about 10 minutes using 'M' mode and it required 2 cycles to stop. So I don't know now if there is any benefit. BTW I set the interval to 0 if that matters.
By 'down' do you mean closed (+5v)? If so, yes I tried that with no better results. But I think you are right about the processing time. That is what causes the misses.
I tried the modified script but I am getting an 'Ukn Stat' error. I just tried the old one and it does stop if I leave the switch on.
