Can I upgrade my CDTV to AmigaOS 3.1?
For many years the CDTV has been stuck using Workbench 1.3.
Whilst an upgrade was released to allow the use of Workbench 2
these were in very limited supply and would not allow access to
many of the more recent AmigaOS 3 applications that actually use
CD-ROM. On December 15, 1998, the Amiga of Minnesota Interest
Groups Alliance (A.M.I.G.A.) announced the final beat testing of an
upgrade to allow the use of the Amiga 3.1 ROM. The upgrade requires
the same ROM chip that fits into the A500 and A2000, and are in
plentiful supply for around £30. The upgrade is an official
licensed product from Amiga International. To order the chip or
request information about it, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the
subject as "CDTV UPGRADE PROJECT" and an order form will
be sent to you. If you are not on the internet write to:

total cost. A.M.I.G.A. have announced that these kits will retail
