Anyone Hack EyeFi card to use with Canon LiveView?

EyeFi makes SD cards that fit in cameras and they can send photos back to your WIFI  router or over the internet to their site.  I would like to mod one to allow me to not send photos, but instead put CANON EOS Rebel camera in Live Mode and wirelessly send LIVE IMAGE back to base station.

Conversely, I want to send "take picture" command back from base station to camera.

Would effectively become WIFI USB cable substitute.

Having tried the EYE-FI Mobi I would discourage anyone to even touch it! Wont spend more money to try out the X2 Direct mode.

You are better off getting a TPLINK TL-MR3040 and use DSLRController. It does what EYE-FI and and a LOT LOT more for less than 50 dollars!!!! You have full Liveview control and a lot more functions that make it great.

If EYE-FI could be moded in the same manner as a TL-MR3040 (v2.4) it would be even better. No cables not hassles. Unfortunately this is not the case.

The space you have to work with is the space your Phone or Table have. If you use an IOs device you will most likely need to jail break it, so I stay away from IOs.

I don't see modifying that card the way you'd like (I doubt it can be modified at all, really). If you don't strictly require wireless, and just want longer distances than regular USB, I'd be looking at ditching the EyeFi in favor of some kind of USB extender using Cat5 Ethernet cable.

There might be an option for something using wireless USB, but no idea which of those would have enough bandwidth to handle the camera traffic.
