Do you think it will work on my 860 IS?

It should work.  You need to be using one of the newer versions of CHDK that support get_ev and set_ev etc.

I've tried your script, and it work.
I cannot set the script in right way:
If I want to shoot 3 photos, -2 0 +2 (maximum range of 860IS), how I have to set the values?
Thanks

P.S.
I doesn't take the third shot if i use AFL, the script will fail.

You would set Step Size to 6.
This should give 3 photos at, -2, 0, +2.

The script is fairly simple and doesn't track or use Auto Focus Lock.
For me once I start the script, it ignores AFL, but I still get the three photos and the script doesn't crash.

If you need to use AFL you can try using the alternate focus lock mode.

Start camera make sure it is not in alt mode.  Set up your photo as required, press shutter 1/2 down to get AFL.  With shutter still held 1/2 way, press MF.  This should lock manual focus to what the AFL is set at.
Start <alt> mode (press printer).  Run script.
Should run using the MF.

Yep, I've tried, but the script doesn't work in this mode.

I started the camera, set the manual mode, shutter 1/2 down and pressed the focus button (this will lock the focus).
When i run the script, it shoot only the first image.

If i remove the AFL lock the script (even in manual mode) run correctly.

Maybe the only way is to replace the set_ev function with another that changes only the TV...
