So AriX, the Prevue Simulator will be our new simulator for all EPG/Prevue/TV Guide software much like the MAME or MESS that this simulator will simulate the Prevue Networks/TV Guide Networks satellite feeds along with its bottom-screen grid, otherwise we will also have music from hard drive folders during times where the video previews for broadcast/cable networks are not carried by the simulator and will also include 2 video windows for every half-screen which will overlay each video window and blacking out the other promo to allow for scheduling information about each program and channel along with text and graphic ad's and graphical Prevue/TV Guide logos as well as a creator/editor for its scheduled events/fixed time schedule where available in this simulator.
For example, if the Prevue Channel carried a episode of Maisy on the simulator, your scheduled event is:
08:59:40 EDT - Prevue Channel Ident
09:00:00 EDT - Maisy
And, if Prevue aired sports highlights, it will be:
22:14:59 EDT - Grid guide and the Satellite Grid Guide goes down to Prevue Sports.
22:15:00 EDT - Prevue Channel Ident (5 second ident)
22:15:05 EDT - Prevue Sports Intro
22:15:15 EDT - Prevue Sports
Thanks AriX, we can't wait for the Prevue Simulator software starting soon.
