I would only add to this that the CDTV motherboard was uniquely designed for that machine, and does not actually have an Amiga 500 board in it. This is a fine point that was made to me by a big CDTV fan who stopped by my pages. I had also written that the CDTV was an Amiga 500, and he was quite offended and sent me a strong email so that I would note this. :) - Bo -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com]On Behalf Of MagerValp Sent: Tuesday, April 17, 2001 1:11 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: CDTV >>>>> "gb" == g baltissen <email@example.com> writes: gb> Hallo allemaal, I received a Commodore CDTV for free this gb> afternoon.

There are some CDTV-specific titles out there, and some CD32-titles were also CDTV compatible. It also plays audio CDs. gb> - The keyboard input misses one hole.
