CDTV repairs are the order of the day today. How do we take the CDTV apart, does it go back together!? And how do we repair the CDTV CDROM drive? In this RMC Trash to Treasure restoration series I'm hoping to get to the bottm of all these questions and with any luck, have a working Commodore Amiga CDTV at the end of it! We're also joined by Jane Whittaker for an interview from a developers perspective and some fun stories of Commodore history.
