I have built a USB remote set up and installed CHDK on my Canon SD750. I have used the appropriate releases downloaded a day or two ago.
I followed the setup instructions on the CHDK wiki for enabling the remote.
I went to the menu and set the remote parameters so a remote works and set it to single shot mode. I set nothing else.
(The setup instructions for the remote ought to be edited for newbies to tell you to exit from CHDK after setting the remote parameters by hitting the print button again, and then turning the camera on and off to get the optics to become active.)
When I hit the USB button, the screen indicates the camera has responded. So my switch and power supply are ok. But no image is actually shot. What am I doing wrong?
I am writing the following to help other newcomers, and perhaps to encourage some fine person to edit the pages I now mention.
The remote shutter release page also is very unclear as to how to get to the "remote parameters" menu. I spent a lot of time searching. Of course it is buried in the Miscellaneous items sub-menu which is itself the very last item on the first menu page. Then again, the remote parameters sub-sub-menu is found very very far down in the Miscellaneous items sub-menu. One could waste a lot of time figuring this out.....
