[Download] Sneak Prevue Manual

Post by AriX » Fri Apr 26, 2019 2:46 pm

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 the software's menus and operation. There's a good number of juicy details on the Prevue Channel side, too. Check it out and share your findings!

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 - Transponder 8? I think we originally established that in the early days of Prevue, and EPG, that the data feed came from WGN's satellite channel.

Very interesting find. If only we can find a manual for Prevue....

Steven
