Re: What are you doing today?

It's great, thanks for asking :)

Working on trying to get CTRL data working on Amiga ESQ so that I can emulate the top half video feed of the Prevue Channel (sorry if that's too on topic...)

Re: [Download] Sneak Prevue Manual

Arix, Something interesting in the picture descriptions. They have the satellite listed as Galaxy 5 - Transponder 7. If memory serves me correctly, that is WGN. I wonder that if Prevue Networks used WGN as the data feed for Sneak Prevue after Prevue Guide/Channel was moved to Satcom C4 - Transponde...

Re: New youtube videos

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gnD70THQQQ Footage of a later incarnation of "Prevue Junior" (as previously mentioned in the "TV Guide Channel in Mexico" thread) from July 6, 2019 via Frankfort Public Board (FPB) Cable. Wow - that's really something. Thanks for sharing! Totally looks like Prevue J...

What did you do with the keyboard in the end, AriX? Is it sitting in a box somewhere or did you put it to good use? haha
I didn't buy it, sadly!

Re: [Download] Sneak Prevue Software

Tried it on my real Amiga and it fired right up! Now it sits on the "Stand by" screen (unless I go into the diagnostics menu). Probably need to get it some data.

[Download] Sneak Prevue Manual

I got my hands on something exciting recently: a copy of the Sneak Prevue Installation and Operating Guide from July 1995. Happy to be able to share it today. The manual includes a lot of great information about Sneak Prevue, including terminology, the hardware and setup process, and a preview of th...

Re: [Download] Sneak Prevue Software

I know very little about hardware emulation, but I wonder if this could be useful? https://github.com/mamedev/mame/blob/bf4f1beaa2cd03b4362e52599ddcf4c4a9c32f13/src/emu/bus/amiga/zorro/a2232.c Also, wanted to note as mentioned on Discord: I believe "vd" (the name of the Sneak Prevue binary) stands f...

And select "Download Diagrams of Operation, JPG (English)"

Some neat info (also attached for posterity)!

Re: [Download] Sneak Prevue Software

I guess I'll have to hook back up to my Amiga and see if it's possible to get a good dump of sts. However, my guess is that it's a separate mechanism and isn't necessary for operation of the Sneak Prevue software. I think we should at least try to make progress on the LaserDisc player connection and...
