Im gonna put this up on e-bay soon but i thought id ask if anyone here is interested. Some of the e-bay prices are bonkers by the way. Im selling mine at a very reasonable price.

Its a cdtv in excellencent condition with original keyboard, black external diskdrive, black mouse, 2 controllers,  one as new and the other in good nick. and the relevant cables and such. I paid 180 euros for the cdtv with keyboard, one controller and mouse when i bought it a few months ago from an online retro store. I paid around 70 euros for the diskdrive. Im looking to make my money back. So thats 250 euros + postage.

Postage could be 70 euros or so within europe but id get an exact postage quote of course. It's based on weight obviously.

I also have a bunch of games and other software for the cdtv if anyones interested. And of course a couple of caddys for the cd's.

I will sell the games seperately if preferred. Some i paid little for and some i paid quite a bit, wrath of the demon cdtv disc in nice condition was like 60 euros other stuff was like 10 euros.

Only minor stuff is a scratch on the top of the cdtv, just a paint scratch, and a scratch on the top of the diskdrive again just a paint scatch.

If somebody is genuinely interested i will add some photos but hey its in great condition!

That's a nice piece of hardware you're selling there. I wish I had some monies to spare to buy it!

(but I already spent too much in retro consoles and computers this year. And we're only at the half of it…)

Hi, I'm interested in this. I've never owned one so I have to ask, do all CD's require a "caddy" ? and how many caddy's come with this CDTV?

I live in the UK so if you could get a postage quote for me.

Arnie.

Hi, yes all cd's require a caddy. Im at my parents place till tuesday but will upload photos on tuesday, I will also get a postage quote on wednesday as im working all day tuesday.

I think there are 3 caddies. I need to weight the parcel on a large set of scales due to bulk and weight.

I have some software too if your interested. I will sell the games individually if you wish.

Software i have is: Wrath of the demon, lemmings, town with no name, a psygnosis demo cd showing a game that was never released etc, some educational/ documentary stuff and maybe more. All cdtv cd games. They are all in good condition but i can take photos. the controllers are wireless infra red.

If you have any more questions just ask or pm me.

There are custom upgrade kickstart devices on e-bay sometimes. There's also a device that alows you to hook up joysticks with the regular pins connector. its on e-bay too. its a custom job.

Cdtv has its own connector. You can hook up an external hardrive but i dunno about internal hacking or anything.

I have a KS switcher that I bought from Amigakit for my A600, that should work.

I read that to upgrade the KS you need to upgrade the extended roms aswell. If I upgrade the roms will KS1.3 still work?

This adapter should allow me to add a HD... Acard AEC-7720U SCSI to IDE bridge, anyone used it?

I guess the kickstart switcher should work dunno about the bridge thing. as far as i know kick 1.3 should still work.

This is a good article and it explains wht games are rare and wich are not.http://www.amigareport.com/ar501/feature2.html

@ Arnie -

Ok Ive double checked. 

Price is 250 euros + 47 euros postage.

Postage is registered and insured up to 320.00 euros. You will have to sign for it upon receipt.

So that's: One keyboard, one diskdrive, one mouse, 2 controllers, cables and the cdtv console itself.

The 3 caddies are also included though the clip is broken on one of them.

I have carefully packed it and added plenty of padding.

It was quite a trek to get a big enough box and find some bags of shredded paper.

You can pay via paypal if that works for you.

Hi,

CDTV arrived late yesterday, works 100%. :D

Looks like someone dropped it enroute though, the corner is now scratched and dented. :angry: :angry:

The floppy drive needs a bit of TLC as it wont read/write disks properly.

Keyboard is in excellent condition and the controllers work ok.

It took me a good 10 mins to figure out how to load a cd into the caddy :lol:

Overall a great pice of kit, well pleased,

Thanks.

Arnie.

Dammit I tried to pack it as good as possible. They must not have handled it with any care. Annoying. Glad your happy. yeah the caddy takes a while to sort. I used music maker on the disc drive a while back and it was fine. Might need a cleaning i guess. My old a500 is filthy and must get a full overhaul soon. Yeah the keyboards in good nick all right. glad someone who appreciates it owns it now. Enjoy.
