USB remote to trigger video record ? ( Solved )

Hi I have been a silent user of CHDK for quite some time now, and I have made some simple scripts ( nothing worth publishing ) however today I was trying what I thought would be a simple script, to trigger a video recording on the camera
using the remote basically the script is quite simple:
Code: [Select]
@title my remote
do
until (is_key "remote")
print "click"
shoot
end

But well if I try it on video mode the camera never starts recording, but if I try it on any other mode, ( picture mode)
the camera takes 1 picture and ends.

any idea what could be happening ?

I have tried it on an A590IS, I will try it on an A560 that I have here as well, but the A590 has not worked, so any advice is appreciated.

that sounds rather odd, did you use the latest CHDK version (a590 port has has lots of bugs), and did you try replacing shoot with click "shoot_full"?

yeah I tried shoot_full and shoot and I was using the latest build, however the script worked on every other mode but not on camera mode
