@waterwingz: Just did a test with the 1.0 version that you posted. Looks like it works to me. it was reporting information in the misc info and in the test scripts I was using.

Okay .. updated the latest trunk based on that.

If this does not work,  I'll add a bunch of debug print statements to dump stuff to the LCD screen (no scripts required) and we can debug from there.

@waterwingz - Just tried the new version. The SD card shows as locked when I use the new version. I see the CHDK splash screen and I'm able to access the alt menu. However, The card shows as locked as if I had put it in locked without CHDK.

Also, I'm not able to access the new remote features. I looked under Miscellaneous Stuff and the option is not there at the bottom or anywhere else in the menus as far as I can tell.

I did try the misc values output. It turned to 1 from 0 when hooked up to my 5V switch. So it appears to be reading the values correctly now. Tried a couple of the other test scripts and they worked as well.

I'll look at that - I have some ideas of things that can be tried.

From the main menu, its under CHDK Settings as the 6th item on that menu. The menu item says Remote Parameters.

Found the problem.  The ixus750_sd550 is the only Canon P&S camera I have seen where the SD card lock input bit is in a different input register than the USB power input bit.   Strange.

Here's a build that takes that into account :  https://www.box.com/s/16md0na6prysthh36kou

If it works as expected,  I'll post a patch for the autobuild.

Additional Confirmation:
I wrote a new little script that would test out all of the variations of the usb power function. Once I enabled the remote all of them reported values. Here's the script I used for reference:

@title USB Test V10

i = 1

do
   sleep 200

   a = get_usb_power
   b = get_usb_power 1
   c = get_usb_power 2
   d = get_usb_power 3

   print i, ":", a, ":", b, ":", c, ":", d


   i = i + 1
until (0)

One down,  four to go.

Two down, three to go.   (sd450 / sd600 / s2is ).

Update :  apparently srsa_4c fixed the s2is.   Two to go.
