Recently obtained a Sneak Prevue laserdisc from 1994. Now I just need to find a Pioneer laserdisc player, and once I do I will try to post up what I find..

Holy s**t, congratulations! I will need to see some of that. I don't know for sure, but I believe there is also data for the movie listings on one of those laser discs, since it doesn't come over satellite.

I'm kinda close to having the source code to Sneak Prevue, so that could be cool.

I don't think so right now, but I'm pretty sure it's all sitting on a dusty shelf somewhere in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and therefore we could have a chance some day. I also think there's probably a copy on a dusty shelf in some UVSG engineer's house, so it's always a possibility.

Yeah I was surprised about the cost. Lucky for me I was able to bargain with him and I ended up paying about half the price for it. The one I got was from 5/94: http://cgi.ebay.com/SNEAK-PREVUE-5-94-D ... 230fc1aab1

Unfortunately it isn't here yet but my tracking number says its only about 10 miles away so I should be able to post pictures very soon. :)

Okay just got it today! :D I also found a LD player on craigslist for $50 so hopefully I'll be able to get a video capture soon. Here are some photos I took: http://www.flickr.com/photos/39880645@N ... 538683339/
