The attached File, Mode-Icon_Demo.gif, shows some of the "Camera Modes worked OK"

The attached File, Sx610_LV_&_CHDK.gif, attempts to show the ChdkPtp-r795 Live View Error.

I don't understand what is wrong with live view.
Images are so tiny and I can't see anything.
Can you describe with words what's going on?

EDIT:
I sent you a test version with some changes to the lib.c file.
See if the zebra mode works correctly, these changes may have an impact on it.
Set the threshold to [10], this will make the zebra indicator much more visible.

So does it work? And how could I compile and attempt to run it? I seem to see posts saying it works to an extent, but I'm unsure about how to compile CHDK from source as opposed to downloading a released version.

It works but only for firmware 100a.
Take a single image with your camera and upload image somewhere (google drive, dropbox or something). Send the download link here and I'll see which version of the firmware you have.
If you have a firmware 100a, I will send you a link for downloading.
If you have a different version of the firmware,you need to make a dump of your firmware.

The original "LiveView" display problem was, very simple, only the top half of "LiveView"
was visible. i.e. the (top half) vertical "LiveView" was twice as high when compared to the cameras "LiveView" display.

I did two very quick tests using your latest "LiveView" sx610 test version:-
No camera crashes, No "LiveView" error log, But I have not had time to do any more extensive testing.
There now only seems to be one "LiveView" related problem, "Miniature Mode" is displaying only the top half when in "LiveView"
as compared to the cameras "LiveView". This is a slightly different problem to the original "LiveView" display problem above.

As I wont be able to do more extensive sx610 testing for some time, may be its time to release a "Pre-Alpha" test
version and a "Pre-Alpha" source code version.

The main problem, I have, is that windows 10 on my laptops now have multiple failures and my back-up XP-home desktop
has now demanded to be "Re-Activated" just because I added two very old Sound Blaster cards. (etc., ..... etc.)

H-H

Edit #1 "FishEye" Deleted, replaced with "Miniature Mode"

To Do post a  "Miniature Mode" mode "Error" image.

Thanks for the report.
I do not have a solution for "FishEye" mode.
Someone has to try the zebra mode, it makes no sense to change the source code in the first post until there is no confirmation that the zebra mode after the last changes works well.

Do you have chdk installed on your camera or do you need a test version?
The source code is for cameras with firmware 100a only, do not try to load it into cameras with a different firmware version, this could have fatal consequences.
