    Decoding Date/Time String in Program Guide Page

    novadar

      Ok, this might sound a bit weird but I happened to try doing a "right-click", "open in new tab" on one of the Program Guide entries while watching my Slingbox on watch.slingbox.com

       

      From the Listing Grid if you do this a Javascript box appears with the detailed information on the show, date/time, and channel.

       

      This example is for January 7, 2011

       

      2:30 pm - 3:00 pm,  KLRN (10)

      Curious George

      // Curious George

      George helps a homing pigeon; George helps a woman with her  packages.

      Tune  to channel now

       

      When you do the "open in new tab" approach the date/time appears in a format that seems to be based on Miliseconds. 

       

      This example is also for January 7, 2011

       

      1294432200000 -  1294434000000, KLRN (10)

      Curious George

      // Curious George

      George helps a homing pigeon; George helps a woman with her  packages.

      Tune to  channel now

       


      Does anyone know how that date/time field converts to a normal one (like on the launching page)?  It does not appear to be a combination of the Julian Date and a Milisecond value from 12:00AM Midnight.  I have tried all sorts of ways to figure it out.
