    Default SCSI-TV and a SCSI modual for the A570 -any intrest?

    I have worked out a deal with Amitrix to bring back a limited amount of SCSI-TV boards back to the community if there is a demand.
    From the old Amitrix web Page:
    Amitrix Development is proud to introduce SCSI-TV, a SCSI controller for the Commodore CDTV and A570 CD-ROM drive for the Amiga 500. This versatile interface allows the CDTV to connect to virtually any SCSI device.

    SCSI-TV installs easily in the expansion port accessible at the rear of the CDTV or A570, without opening the case. A 2.5 inch Quantum GO drive may be mounted on the SCSI-TV circuit board and an external connector can connect to hard drives, scanners, and tape backups, to a total of seven devices.

    SCSI-TV supports the Amiga AUTOCONFIG(TM) standard, providing autobooting capability with Rigid Disk Block support, as well as the SCSI-direct protocol allowing many backup programs to use SCSI tape drives. True DMA allows for fast data transfer rates and low CPU overhead. Full technical support is available to purchasers directly from Amitrix.

    Each SCSI-TV comes complete with licensed versions of Commodore's HDToolBox and Workbench(TM) version 1.3. A provided adapter kit mounts and provides power for a 2.5 inch drive on the SCSI-TV circuit board.


    Each SCSI-TV will be about $35- $40 (depending on parts, as there are a few PCB boards still around) USD plus shipping. We have one in stock now, and if the demand is there, we (Amitrix) can, and are willing to make more. PM or e-mail me for more information.
    Both Amitrix and myself plan to bring some new hardware to the Community in the next year or so, depending of course on the PCB process. It is very exciting partnering with a hardware maker, and the Ideas are floading back and forth. We were dicusing yesterday the posibility of converting the SCSI-TV to IDE and putting in a compact flash drive. That is possible, but there are hang ups in software developent on that.

    Very interesting, indeed. Too bad I don't own a CDTV.

    Did you announce the device on CDTV.org?

    I would definitely want one for my CDTV, if it helps get the numbers up I would buy two at the price you have quoted above.

    Yes, I believe those are the ones, Amitrix pictures are down, And I wont see mine in my hand until next week, as Craig (Amitrix's owner {and president of Amicue BTW} is off on holidays for a week or so, but he wanted me to get a list together, so he can gear up for demand (if any, and it sounds like there is a bunch). I am trying to breath a bit of life back into Amitrix and Amicue at the moment.

    No, what is the URL? because www.cdtv.org is expired.
