OK, here are the numbers for the A560
Relevant misc. values are the same as jeff666 found for the A720:
2: oXoooooo
3: ooooXooo

These are the values on my A560. First value is the X in line 2, second value is the X in line 3, third value is the dialposition.

Code: [Select]
f e - M
f f - Auto
f b - portrait
b f - landscape
b e - night
3 e - kids&pets
7 f - indoor
7 d - SCN
f 9 - movie

If someone would be willing to implement the commands for the A560 I would be very willing to try out the builds so we can find a working solution. Thanks in advance for your fine work.

Chris - there's now a test version for the A720 on my web page at CHDK Mode Dial Support

Let me know if it works.

Zeno, I'm getting a 404 File Not Found error on the A720 firmware URL:

http://www.zenonic.demon.co.uk/zips/ab50dm-a720-v100ca.zip

Can you double-check that?

Thanks!

Ok, you have a typo in your URL.

Here's the proper URL:

I tried this firmware on the A720 but the mode changing isn't working.  Any ideas?  It's not parsing the mode changing bits of my script.

Apologies for the typo - now fixed. As to why it doesn't work on the A720, I'll poke around the source, but not having the camera it's not easy to see what might be wrong. When you say it's not parsing the mode changing bits, do you mean you get script errors?

vine - until I can get the A720 version working I'm not going to try to buid for the A560.

I looked at your source code zeno and deduced the following changes for the platform specific kbd.c
Code: (c) [Select]
static SwitchMap switchmap[] = {
        { 1, DM_M               , 0x00000000, 0x0d000000, 0x00006000 }, // dial-mode switch
        { 1, DM_AUTO            , 0x00000000, 0x0d000000, 0x00007000 },
        { 1, DM_MOVIE           , 0x00000000, 0x0d000000, 0x00008000 },
{ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 }
};
This is based on the values I got on my A560. These three modes are really all that matters, since there is no Tv, Av or P mode. What else would I need to change?

Nothing else I think. You can leave the redundant bits in core\kbd.c and include\keyboard.h

Let me know if the test script works (with the lines to switch to Tv, Av and P modes removed of course).

The test scripts works fine. I'll do some more tests today. My compiled firmware for the A560 can be found here: chdk files  >> Dial mode support for A560.

Good news, vine. I was about to build it myself (seeing you had problems getting gmake to work) but you've beaten me to it.

chrisnell - I have also found where I messed up the A720 build. New version posted to

So, maybe we should add this to the trunk now that it seems to be working properly?
