Is it possible to set usb voltage via script?

Hello

Is there any method one could set the usb voltage via script? If not, is such a feature easy to implement? I know there is the function for testing if usb voltage is set, but can it be set in a script for the camera to simply trigger some external device, such as another camera. I remember reading that it is possible to blink the led and use that to control other devices, but I would prefer the usb port as it is easier to plug a cable there. I was playing with the thought that I could use ixus 870 to trigger my slr by motion detection or use it as an intervalometer.

No, the USB V+ is an input logic signal, not an output.

You may be able to set the state of the output data lines.
There are some problems with it, EWAVR knows the details.i

That is what I do using the very bright autofocus LED.
I also blink the LED to talk to a microcontroller.
