By hooking this up to an emulator like WinUAE that's running the Prevue software (either 9.0.4 or 7.8.3), you can send over various bits of configuration, or even custom TV listings.
Here are the downloads:
* 1.0 for Mac
* 1.0 for Windows
Note that this is a command-line tool, so you'll need to use the Terminal or the Command Prompt in order to make use of it. For a GUI tool, you might check out nwgatwcfan's tool here.
The tool currently supports 4 modes:
Code: Select all
Usage: PrevueCLI send <.prevuecommand file>: Sends the commands in the specified .prevuecommand file PrevueCLI printCommandSchema: Prints all of the supported commands and their syntax details PrevueCLI printJulianDay: Prints today's Julian day (0-255) PrevueCLI help: Prints this help
A fairly complete example of a .prevuecommand file is included; it's called Test.prevuecommand and using it will send over the current time and date, a configuration, several local ads, and a complete set of sample TV listings. A second file, Download.prevuecommand, shows an example of using the download (mode H) command to transfer a file to the remote Amiga. The .prevuecommand file contains two sections: "destinations", and "commands". You should feel encouraged to edit and experiment with both of them.
To see all of the supported commands and all of their parameters and possible values, you can use the "printCommandSchema" mode.
- Serial devices aren't yet supported on Windows; only TCP sending works there
- When sending TV listings, only sending listings from a very particular CSV format is currently supported. Example CSV listings are included. I plan to improve the format and also add integration with something like XMLTV.
- Support for configuration commands is currently incomplete; you'll note that many of the parameters are simply called "unknown". This should be more fully supported soon.
