  • 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?

      @quarkx

      just for clarification,

      do you mean one of these little babies my friend





      I think you will make a lot of CDTV and A570 owners REALLY pleased with your efforts!

        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.

                Everyone, fell free to pass it on to other amiga sites.

                      I definitely would be interested in one of these.
                      It'd make my CDTV a bit more useful

                        That looks cool, but of course I have no CDTV. BTW quark, are the prices on your site in canadian or american $'s?

                          American, just to keep thing simple.
                          if I put it all in Canadian, nobody would buy because of the exchange rate $250 canadian is like $3 US.

                          BTW, Amitrix and myself are designing some way cool hardware coming soon. I probably shouldn't be saying things yet, But as some of you know I got a boxed A1000 in a few weeks ago. Craig and I sat down and looked at that 68k IDE board, and are re-designing it exclusively for the A1000 with a few "extra" features (I want a Compact Flash Hard drive). The end result will fit into all 68K machines, but we wanted a few things on it, and we didn't want to mod the A1000 case in any way (unless you wanted to ad a CD Rom Drive). One of the features will be a ROM switcher, but not like what is out there. There is a certain number (small number) of software Craig uses that only will run on Ver.1.1, so we want to be able to switch to KS.1.1, 1.2, 1.3 on boot with it. Were are not implimenting Ram in it at this time (too my disapointment).
                          This will all be done after Amitrix completes the dozen or so SCSI-CDTV moduals that were ordered.

                            Sounds good, I was thinking of getting an A1000, and if this IDE pulls through, then I'll buy one. things like this keep the community alive... and of course individual computers too (although what they sell costs a bundle)

                              I agree, I would love to order at least 4 to 6 of those new indvision ECS boards, but at a Pre-order price of $140 each from Amigakit, it looks like I will not be ordering that much, maybe just one now.
