@colinbm,

The components you removed seem to be associated with the sound chip.
If you are still getting 5 volts out you are fine.
L2 is the receiver antenna; DO NOT adjust it or remove it.
DO NOT remove any more components.
All the components to the left side of R13 are the RF receiver circuit.
The 8 pin IC modulates U2.

I am planing to build an electric pan drive at a later date; therefore the enclosure has enough room for more electronics.

I ran a sharp knife blade around the speaker, placed a screwdriver in the notch and levered the speaker out.

I would suggest that you buy two more of the units before Jaycar wake up that they are useful as a wireless CHDK/SDM camera remote.

Yep, no worries panoguy,
I won't rip any more into the "Burp" remote.
I have got the 2xCR2032 powering the remote now.
I have got it all to fit into the Jaycar box HB6030, with room to breath.
The Farter machine GH1088 has come down in price to $12.95.
Cheers
Col

I hope your USB remote is a multi-function output device ?
Manual focus, zoom, shutter release, that would be nice.

Hi Col,

It is multi-function but that in the way you hope. It will serve as a wired USB shutter release remote for CHDK or SDM. It is very small and well built. It is modular in its design allowing for the same USB cable that operates the remote to also serve as your cable to download your pictures from your camera to your PC, thus eliminating the need to carry more than one USB cable.

It also serves as an interface for a standard off-the-shelf Canon EOS wireless shutter release (many different manufacturers make them from about $30 US and up) to operate with CHDK and SDM with absolutely no modifications. Just plug-n-play. It's really quite trick. I'm expecting it to sell for around $30 US. I should have a couple of working prototypes to show off in a week or two. I'm hoping to have units available for sale in mid August.

I will post photos and descriptions of the remote just as soon as I can.
Gregg

I had very good use with the remote on the S1IS, but Canon didn't carry it down the range :-(
You can place me on the first order, Please.

I hope this info is of value to David to help troubleshoot Col's problem.

Thanks for spending a lot of time on that.
Some individuals are quick to ask for new features to be added and then fail to respond to requests for a test that would take just one minute.

Quote
SDM_1.84_s5is_101b - Booted up to 1.84 and ran SDM fine.
MD5Sum Starting with a7ebfaa4 - Booted up to 1.84 and ran SDM fine.

Anyway, we can go straight to either of the above two builds, forget all the others.
As expected, they run fine.

Col, run the first one.

If you cannot get it to run, that is the one we need to discuss with Gregg.



David

I am lost.
I am not getting any joy out of getting nil results, just crashes.
The only one that has some resemblance of working is Gregg's Lite version that I loaded the other day.
Even now (today) I can't get it to load again onto a new SD card ? & I had left the file in the same folder from the other day ! Even if I re-download it fron Z-Share it is not working ??????
The SDMINSE seems to be giving me the most grief.
For some reason it gives a error of not wanting to copy the files & other times it doesn't open with all of the options of what you want to do on the SD card ?

Could Gregg send me a copy of the SDMINSE & the DISKBOOT.BIN that he has used to load his S5 Please.
Cheers
Col

You certainly have some very strange system problems.

Gregg should maybe generate an MD5 number from those two files before sending them.
Best to change the file extensions before sending to avoid problems.

Please describe your hardware system and operating system and EXACTLY the procedure you are using to prepare the cards.

Oh dear, I just typed out a long reply & pressed POST & it went into cyber-space because my log-in time had run out :-((
 I have a Canon S5IS firmware 101b.
My laptop has XP & a SD slot.
I try to load the SDM onto the SD this way.
I load the SD card into the SD slot & format the card in FAT.
I then open the folder with the SDM files.
I open the SDMINSE & click on 'New Install'.
Gregg's DISKBOOT.BIN is the only DISKBOOT.BIN file in the folder.
After 'New Install I select Left camera & 4 GB & less & OK
Need to re-create one partition, YES.
Remove card, OK & replace card, OK.
Quick format, NO.
Dos screen, Enter, Enter. CRASH !!!!!!!!!!!
Cannot copy file: Cannot read from source file or disk. OK & EXIT SDMINSE.
I have been doing this all afternoon & night. Not much fun :-(
Cheers
Col

It is getting late in Australia ....

I think there can be problems with built-in card-readers.
If possible, buy a cheap USB card-reader.

Format the card and make bootable with card tricks

OR

take a bootable CHDK card and temporarily rename DISKBOOT.BIN.


Simply copy the SDM DISKBOOT.BIN to the card.

Do not use sdminst.exe new install.

Thanks David
Actually it is early in Aust, 2am.
I have card reader, will try later after sleep.
Instructions understood, so will execute later.
