Re: Prevue Guide Wiki

Arix, This is the wiki that I was working on with the tables. Prevue Emulation: Curday.dat and Nextday.dat The large table with the HEX codes is supposed to appear under Flag 1, but it puts it a bit further down. The second table was regarding the Timeslots, it's all the way at the bottom of the pag...

Re: Some screenshots of the Program that I am working on

This looks really awesome! If it helps at all, here is my (really very poorly-written) proof-of-concept sender from a few years ago. sender.c sender.h Arix, I appreciate it. I was looking at the code and I noticed that you found the command to unlock the keyboard for the local ads. I have been work...

Re: Some screenshots of the Program that I am working on

what software is this for the prevue guide editor? This is a creation out of Visual Studio C# for Win 7. I have built the program from the ground up and it is still a work in progress. I am learning C# and its strange coding rules and also as an easier way to build listings without having to calcul...

It's okay. I know. I am trying to do a couple of tasks with both Atari and Amiga with emulators in Windows....

Thanks,

Some screenshots of the Program that I am working on

These are some screenshots of the project that I am working on in C# - for sending listings data through Serial. I am learning as I go with C#, so it's taken me a while to get to this point.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks,
Steven

Prevue Guide Wiki

I need some help. I am trying to place a couple of tables in the Wiki on the pages that I created and just are now getting to edit. The problem is that the tables are not showing up in the correct locations. I trying to figure out what I am doing wrong. Also, I am still trying to figure out some mor...

Re: Sneak Prevue Laserdisc!

I'm extremely anxious to see the October/November 1997 LDs. This is the era that I remember best. It's crazy to see a forum devoted to this channel(s). I'd watch Sneak Prevue all the time as a kid (most heavily during 1st grade -- 1997) considering my parents would hate the advertisements for all o...

Re: LISTINGS!

That's very cool! I actually specifically remember one of my sources - the original EPG Jr./Sr./Prevue Guide software guy - mentioning that the six-byte channel mask was one of the things that could be sent in a channel command, but I never knew how to do it. AriX, thank the person that sent the te...

Re: LISTINGS!

I have found a new discovery. Remember in the curday.dat and nxtday.dat that there are a series of 6 Hex FF characters next to each other right before the channel name. At the time, it was found that they controlled the time that a channel was actively displayed in the grid and also advised Off Air ...

Amazing...3 years of being a member of this forum

I know this is off topic, but I just realized that I have been a part of this for three years now. I have learned so much in the course of these three years about Prevue Guide, the Amiga, the Atari 8-bit system, emulators, serial commands, and C#. What I didn't think would be possible a long time ag...
