I guess after realizing that a USB remote would be perfect for this project, my thought was having the Pi autostart the chdkptp's cli and to write a program (would I need to write a Lua script for this?..)
that reads a specific USB button press and writes out a command to chdkptp. reyalp, you make it seem like this is a possibility... I'm just going to have to research how exactly to do this. Know of any good Raspberry Pi forums/websites that could help me out with this question?
How exactly do I get things up and running without the GUI?
For information about the syntax and commands available seehttps://app.assembla.com/spaces/chdkptp/wiki/CLI_Quickstart and the included USAGE.TXT
This has a lot more to do with Raspberry Pi programming than using CHDK, but I was hoping that changing the title to my post would get some fresh eyes on my question.
The xmbc / home theater stuff doesn't apply, but writing a script that takes key presses and generates chdkptp commands should not be a big deal. For $5, my suggestion would be to just buy one and start tinkering.
