I'm yet to find any software hacks for the D's (I've read, and seen firmwares that turn a 300D into a 10D!! )... but, the one hardware hack I've so far found, invloves a universal programmable IR remote, and a D70s.
The remote I had from many moons ago, thinking it may come in handy one day
..... boy was I right!
I got it for the broken TV remote replacement, but no way on gods earth would it work with my TV! (it worked with the DVD though)
Got me a 'cheap' IR/wireless remote for the D70s now!
The problem was always going to be what code to program into the programmable remote
I searched for ages and found two or three forum threads that alluded to using JVC TV, TV, and VCR player codes.
For my 'el-cheapo', $5 Chunghop ( ) brand remote it turns out that VCR code works
The buttons that work turn out to be randomly placed, so far I've found 4 or 5 that work, and some work with AF- , others work with only(no AF)...
ps. this is a temporary situation until I can get me-self both the wireless and cord remotes!
I'm not going to lug around a fullsized multifunction TV remote
pps. I did find a program to do similar things with a Palm IR port. I didn't find anything interesting to run on Windows Mobile devices though.
...now I'm off to make me a cheap reflector!
If you know of any hacks or tips in a similar vein..... please post!
