Being Elliot Carver: How to run your own Cable TV station (or network)

Talk by Phil Pemberton (He/him)

Sunday from 5:20 PM - 5:50 PM in Stage C

There's nothing good on TV, and streaming curses you with the Paradox of Choice. So why not be Elliot Carver for a day and run your own Cable, satellite or UHF TV station - or even a whole network? With a few low-cost computer boards (Raspberry Pi's work but others are fine too) and video modulators, you can recreate the wonders of 1990s Cable TV in your own home, flat, or living room. I'll also talk about going further and how I recovered and resurrected a General Instrument ACC-4000 headend controller PC and used it to configure a small fleet of cable boxes.
