LOL was just editing my post - see additions

edit: forgot to mention  :-[ going to <Alt> will just load the script, you need to press 'half-shoot'  the shutter to start (and stop)  it, unless you activate 'Script Autorun' in the menu ....

Restart the camera and the change will be undone.

Or you could make another script to set it back to the original value.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

A side note, the 30 minutes limit is not because of the 4Gb limit (that can or can not be reached in 30 minutes depending on many factors). It is because the morons in EU (the bureaucrats from Bruxelles) decided that zomg, if a camera can record more than 30 minutes, it is a camcorder, so it must be taxed even more, so that they can throw the money away.

I tried everything, but it's not working  :'(.

When you execute the script with the shutter button, your camera can't do anything, every button on the camera is dead,
so you can't start to record the video.

You must execute the script after you press the record button, (<ALT>, then shutter button and the script start), but again during the recording you can't do anything (zoom in or zoom out).

The script do its job, it override the 29'59'' seconds and the camera gone till 45min, 60min, but when the camera must save the file the camera shuts down. You must power up your camera and the file is nowhere to be found, but it occupied the space on your card, so you must format your card and install CHDK again.

I tried to wait till 35min finish, I tried during the recording around min 31'40'' to select <ALT> and disable the script with shutter button and press the record button to stop the recording but again the camera shuts down. It was not because of limit of 4Gb. I set movies to quality 20 and 30 and they had just about 1 - 1,5Gb.

I think that the script is doing it's job, but just half of it.

Another script must be added to override the camera saving system, because I think that when the 29'59'' seconds passed camera can't save the file and shuts down.

- start HD video recording
- enter <alt> mode and start this script
- wait for a second and exit <alt> mode, time limit will be 35 minutes

in fact, reading that carefully again, 'start video recording' could be interpreted 2 ways:

1) set the cam to HD video recording mode (cam is waiting for you to press shutter)

2) as 1) but also start recording

If you have interpreted ewavr's instructions as in 2) then try again as in 1)

And yes, it's normal that <Alt> mode blocks all 'normal' cam response while you are in video or photo
shooting mode

I done that way to, but when it show 35'00'' camera goes for a second black screen - busy and then turn off.

When I turn on the camera there's nothing on the memory card.

Yesterday I've installed CHDK and was trying everything to record more then 30 minutes of continuous recording of HD movies, but couldn't do it.

I tried with quality 50, 30, 25, 15 but every time when it comes to 29'50' the numbers become red and is recording for just another 10 seconds and then stops.
What is the problem?
Does anybody know how to set CHDK to record more then 1h of continuous movie?

Thanx.

Can I quickly ask, do the video quality settings work with your SX1 ok or not? Can you record at higher bitrate than is default for HD video (without CHDK) or not? Thanks.
