Re: Trying to get the Channel Lineup to Upload to Version 7.8.3

Hey Steven, I'm very sorry for the delay here. I spent a while trying different stuff here but ultimately I wasn't able to reproduce any problems that were specific to version 7.8.3. There was a lot of data in your serial log so it was hard to figure out which parts to experiment with - but ultimate...

Re: Trying to get the Channel Lineup to Upload to Version 7.8.3

Hey Steven,

2 questions:
- Are you trying to provide channel lineup via curday.dat, or via mode C serial commands?
- Can you provide an example of a command or curday that your program is generating that is not working? I can try to inspect it and see if I can figure out what’s going wrong.

Re: [Release] PrevueCLI

AriX, this is very good. Looks like were nearly 55% almost getting "the real Prevue/TVGC working like the old days" dreams come true, but using emulation. Is this similar to the one used in the Prevue/TVGC mainframe computers in Tulsa? So glad you like it! It's probably not too similar to the one u...

Re: [Release] PrevueCLI

Here's a quick tutorial on how to get this up-and-running with WinUAE: First, make sure you have WinUAE up-and-running with the Prevue software. There's a great tutorial from tin here . In WinUAE settings, under IO ports , enable the Serial Port by choosing "TCP://0.0.0.0:1234". Start WinUAE. Next, ...

[Release] PrevueCLI

Hi all, I'm excited today to release a tool called PrevueCLI. This is a command-line "sender" tool that genereates a data feed that's compatible with the Atari and Amiga software that was used to power the Electronic Program Guide and Prevue Guide. By hooking this up to an emulator like WinUAE that'...

Re: New youtube videos

You must have forgotten: Great find! This is really cool. I knew that the EPG logo had the same typeface as the Prevue logo, but I didn't know that it was ever used on-air. And interesting to see that they called it "The EPG" (I had seen that mentioned in a press release before). And that '80s jing...

Re: New youtube videos

Not a new video - but something I hadn't seen before. An ad for advertising on the EPG channel, complete with an Electronic Program Guide jingle! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYrNEkS_RYQ

Also, here's an EPG (perhaps Apple II?) clip from 1985: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksMuLqP4_nM

This is neat, TiVo, is in some ways is the current owner of Prevue, having acquired Rovi, formerly Macrovision, which acquired Gemstar-TV Guide. On its Careers website, under "innovation timeline", they have sections for the launch of the EPG and Prevue Guide: http://careers.tivo.com/innovation Atta...

Re: Software Hunt

For the Windows NT screenshot - do you think it could be "HOLLYWOOD.EXE"?
