Here you can see SVI-738 service manual, but the Sony "Interactive video" manual is really rare manual. It is a manual for HB-G900(A)P U-Matic video controller. This device was built by Sony into a place of second diskdrive controller.

We have Sony G900P with the interface, needed cables, two videos and cassettes, but unfortunately we don't have the software. Crying In manual there are some examples of controlling the video from BASIC and some information about video editing software found from disk delivered with the interface.

I bought a Sony MSX2 HB-G900AP ​​(AZERTY model), two specific programs.
The first is known: Multi-telopper (with two disc readable)
But the second is much rarer : MIXPLAY v3.0 (05/31/1987) (with two disc unreadable, unfortunately)
I guess the program'''' interactive video must be equivalent to MIXPLAY may be more recent.

in the book MIXPLAY English: I read that this program allowed controlled reading Laserdisc and U-matic, and created programs to run playback superimposing text, images, and the headband with texts.

good news: I managed to read both discs MIXPLAY on HB-G900P (on the Turbo R Jipe , disks were unreadable?!? strange!)

I have not managed to make copies DSK because my floppy drive stubbornly refuses to read (with DISCMGR on PC) , but hey if it is necessary I can very well make copies of real disk, because it is DOS1.3

This program was realized by society TECHNIFORM INTERNATIONAL TFII in PARIS (France) and was then translated into English by the company SOCOM - SONY Europe (Utrecht - Netherlands)
full name is: MIXPLAY, Interactive Authoring System

The manual has 171 pages, the first disk contains the program and the second disk contains two examples of programs

the record indicates that this program allows the control frame or a different speed to slow to a U-matic or a Laserdisc.

Using the Memory Mapper as an external 512kB Ramdisc C: (the HB-G900P)

it should also be an option as a second RS232C interface on the cartridge port for connecting a TOUCH SCREEN!?!?

If you have a 2 drive MSX, you can create a DMK disk image of it. See http://www.msx.org/forum/msx-talk/software-and-gaming/make-d...
