Well, as I understand it, the purple one's "TV Pack" includes a special
RF transmitter that grabs a signal from specially encoded videotapes
or even the PBS show. Where did they stuff the signal - in the video
or the audio? If audio, at what frequency? Or is it just in the
second audio channel, like bilingual programming?

Does anyone remember any pre-BBS-era, pre-Internet attempts to send
modem tones over US radio or television programming?
