SX100 and remote issues, cant trigger.

Hi.
New here, and have been searching the forum b4 post, I hope I dont doublepost since I cant find anything like my issue.

Equipment;
Cam: Canon SX 100 IS, fw 1.00c, 4gb bootable card. Can access and use all menys in CHDK
CHDK: sx100is-100c-0.9.7-730-full.zip

Remote eqip;
RC TX: Futaba T7C 2.4 fasst, attached to Askman cammount, and are running the servos smooth for pan and tilt.
Controller: VP-systems (http://www.vp-systems.eu/camremote.html)

Problem:
Cant get the radio and the camera to talk. rather cant get CAMRemote and the camera correct.
Tried all the configs in the CAMremote software. Tried every "remote" script I could find for Canon, started ofc both in chdk boot mode and normal without scripts. Tried every channel on the reciver, no, still other attached stuff responds.

Have been trying like for a week now, and are out of ideas...
I so glad if I just can trigger the shutter... I dont care for the rest atm.

Any one?

Tried every "remote" script I could find for Canon

The receiver outputs variable-width pulses to the USB connector.
Your script has to respond to those particular pulse widths.
To see scripts for a similar device, see http://stereo.jpn.org/eng/sdm/kap.htm
The gentLes receiver outputs pulses of width 30, 60, 90, 120, 150 and 180 msec.
Your device outputs 16,65,100,165 and 200 msec pulses so you need to change the script in the above link.

Let us know how you get on.

David

Hi David.

Thanks. Couldnt find any example scripts there. How ever, it seems like my camremote has some errors.
VP-Systems will send me a new one. I'll get back with a progress-report.
