However, I don't get an <ALT> symbol, or any access to CHDK menus or functions other than those above. Can anyone suggest what might be wrong, or have similar issues?
i have a version from a week or 2 ago. i now have mine set to go into the CHDK menus with the video button, but the firmware comes with a 2-button press to get to the <ALT> screen: i press the FUNC. SET button, and while holding that down, toggle the zoom lever briefly all the way to the right (telephoto). Then the red <ALT> marker shows up at the bottom of the screen, and i let go the FUNC.SET button and hit the MENU button to get into the CHDK menus. From there i go to the Miscellaneous Stuff menu, where the <ALT> mode button can be set. i change that to Video.
Yay! I think that worked.
Yay! I think that worked. It's a little tricky, and doesn't work every time
Then i go into the OSD Parameters submenu and set up the user menu and get it to show up directly instead of the <ALT> mode screen.
- If you do remap it then that button it's remapped to will get the cam into and out of <ALT> mode.
It can be a bit fiddly, but what a fantastic piece of software this CHDK is. A truly worthwhile hack.

Then there's the whole question of ISO and shutter speeds. Most of my real photography experience (anything beyond snapshots, IOW) dates back to the days when ISO was fixed by the roll of film you had in the camera. Now it's another variable, and from my limited experience so far, seems biased to really low ISO and slow shutter speeds.Anyway, it should be interesting!
