Frank,

Did you see Bill's response to my question in this forum, a few months back,  about VSX and Guide?  He wrote a tdf file for the VSX data and downloaded the DB.  

From the Extras menu you can turn on or off VSX catalog.  The VSX stars are marked with purple crosshairs.  Directly from the Guide information you can see the star's name, VSX identifier, var. type, VSX coordinates, and there's a hyperlink to VSX record for that star.

Very cool!   

In that response you'll find the compresses VSX data file and the tdf.
