If you can find a 8" drive off ebay. Or The Broadcast Store may have
something in the bone yard.
If you find a drive.
You may use Windows and wordpad to just to get in and outs.
Or tape names.
CMX was DOS based.
Thats about the only usefull info off EDL's of the day.
Switcher mems and GPI stuff would be useless.
TPG was CMX 340 or 3400 in the day I think.
As Rob mentioned if you spec what info you would like to retrieve the group
may be help more.
8" was right after punched tape and considered a break thru for the
assistants to deal with.
At least it was not a feed system and did not chew.
